In 2017 New Day Community Outreach acquired what has been known for a decade as “The Cinderella Project of Lafayette” and renamed it, The Butterfly Effect. For years, UL Americorp did a phenomenal job managing the project and hosting the huge annual dress giveaway along with several pop-up events. Managing this project is no easy task! Storing dresses, coordinating volunteers, donations and more became unsustainable for UL Americorps.
New Day Community Outreach was ready to step up and accept the challenge. Although we were not expecting to add a dress giveaway to our mission, we knew the project HAD to continue! After careful consideration, we decided to rename the project- The Butterfly Effect and set out on a mission to truly Transform Lives! Today, we are proud to say hundreds of girls have been served since 2017 and our dress giveaway is one of Acadiana’s most anticipated events!
