"It's not really fair that (less-fortunate girls) don't get to go to the dances because they don't have the resources to get a dress," Weinberg said.
Charmed Closet - run by Weinberg and other MHS students Emmy Rechsteiner, Ally Chastain and Caroline Graham - advertise through fliers and Facebook. The "polished" dresses, ones in good condition and without stains, are collected at a designated area near the front office of MHS. Once a week, the collection is taken to one of the girls' homes and sorted.
"For me, the dances make up the year. They're so fun and (Charmed Closet is) a great way to get involved," Weinberg said.
Like most high schools, MHS has two major dances, homecoming and prom. Charmed Closet has already begun its drive to collect dresses for the fall dance.
"I couldn't imagine my high school without (the dances). It's a part of high school that every girl should be able to experience," Weinberg said. "Girls with limited resources may not get the opportunity to go to these dances, and I don't think that's fair."
Like many of her friends, Weinberg has extra dresses that she "probably won't even wear again."
"I think it's fair and sensible to give those dresses to girls who need them," she said.
Charmed Closet not only accepts donations from students but also from anyone in the community, said the daughter of Linda Holland and Ray Weinberg.
"It's a great way to give back to other people, a great way for others to get involved," Weinberg said.
To donate, bring your polished dresses to the MHS front office where the drop off area is located. Contact Charmed Closet at charmedcloset@ gmail.com or visit Facebook and search for "Charmed Closet."
