Deliv Teams Up with The Princess Project to Deliver 600 Prom Dresses
Deliv supports San Francisco teens in need by delivering donated prom dresses for teens who can’t afford them
Palo Alto, CA – March 3, 2014 – same day delivery company, Deliv, has partnered with The Princess Project to provide free delivery of 600 prom dresses so teens who otherwise couldn’t afford dresses will be the belles of the ball.
On March 3rd, Deliv drivers will pick up dresses at dozens of locations throughout the city including Stonestown Galleria, The Bar Method, The Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Salesforce, Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre and more.
“Community involvement is a core value for Deliv and our drivers,” said Daphne Carmeli, Deliv CEO. “The Princess Project is a fantastic program. We were thrilled when we received the request and we’re really excited about making sure hundreds of prom dresses get safely to the beautiful teens who will now go to their prom with pride.”
“The Princess Project is excited to partner with Deliv and Stonestown Galleria. Deliv will be picking up over 600 dresses from 13 of our San Francisco dress drive locations, saving us hours of city driving. They are truly helping us in making dreams real,” said Serena Quan, Co-Chair of The Princes Project San Francisco.
Deliv partners with mall operators and national multichannel retailers to provide a low-cost, high quality, same day delivery service via its quality-controlled fleet of crowdsourced drivers. By partnering directly with retailers, the Deliv “same day delivery” button becomes a native part of the checkout screen, keeping the direct relationship between the retailer and the consumer. The Deliv platform incorporates smart routing and full transparency, including the ability for consumers to watch their delivery on a map real time from pick up to their doorstep.
Deliv is headquartered in Palo Alto, California, and is backed by some of Silicon Valley’s leading venture capital firms.
About The Princess Project
The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses and accessories to high school teens who cannot otherwise afford them. Their effort is made possible through invaluable volunteer, donor and community support.
The Princess Project began in February 2002 when one girl needed one dress for her prom. Founders Laney Whitcanack and Kristi Smith Knutson responded to this young woman’s request for help by involving friends and family in a dress drive. Within days, women from all over the San Francisco Bay Area offered their support through donations of their “time, talent and taffeta.”
Since that time, The Princess Project has served over 20,000 teens through the dedication of more than 2,000 volunteers and the generous start-up support of Coro Northern California. In 2005, The Princess Project became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
