Dream Dress Drive
Yesenia’s Dream Dress Drive is our signature event where we provide the means for young women in need to attend formal social events within their schools. We solicit donations of quality new and “gently worn” formal dresses, gowns, shoes, and accessories, so young women can attend their high school formal occasions without worrying about the finances. This allows them the opportunity to have memories of what is one of the most special high school events and a right of passage in a young girl’s life—the prom.
Our latest initiative fills a pressing need in our communities—equipping our young people with the skills they need to enjoy the fruits of their labors by understanding financial matters and managing their finances wisely. We’re offering a series of workshops covering everything a young man or woman needs to know when it comes to money.
Recently YHF was involved in supporting an orphanage in Ecuador to honor Yesenia Orozco’s plans to provide humanitarian relief to the under-provided children in her father’s native land. Donations to YHF enabled the Foundation to adopt an orphanage in Guayaquil, Ecuador to provide for basic needs of orphaned children and to improve their quality of life.
