Teens' Closet honored volunteers and donors with a luncheon Sept. 30, treating guests to a spaghetti meal, live music and a fashion show at American Lutheran Church in Prescott.

"Nearly 30 Prescott teens from The Edge, American Lutheran Church's popular and rapidly growing youth group led by Adam Bretz, set up, cleaned up, served the delicious spaghetti lunch, played in the band, and put on a fantastic fashion show, modeling clothing from Teens' Closet," said Krystal Koons, co-founder of Teens' Closet.

Sarah Jane Schott, an eighth-grader at Granite Mountain Middle School, was named the Youth Volunteer of the Year for more than 100 hours worked at Teens' Closet over the past year. 

Myrna and Jack Gifford were given the Angels of the Year Award for donating the building for Teens' Closet.

Rachel Freeman was honored as the Adult Volunteer of the Year for her work as lead volunteer, maintaining the schedule and working directly with teens three days a week. 

Kaileigh Koons, co-founder of Teens' Closet, will be receiving Yavapai County Community Foundation's Youth Philanthropist of the Year Award later this month for her work with Teens' Closet. Last May, Kaileigh was awarded Prescott Area Leadership's Youth of the Year Award for her work with Teens' Closet. 

Teens' Closet would like to thank Allen's Flowers, Costco, Prescott Flower Shop, Safeway and Wal-Mart for sponsoring the luncheon and making it such a success, Koons said.

Teens' Closet is a nonprofit providing free clothing for teens in need in the quad-city area.  It is always in need of monetary donations and new or like-new clothing for teens. Tax-deductible donations may be dropped off at American Lutheran Church, 1085 Scott Drive in Prescott, or at The Rock across from Prescott High School.
