Student Council held their first formal dress drive on the week of March 16. They accepted dresses from whoever was interested in donating.
They accepted old, gently used formal dresses. The school was mainly interested in homecoming and prom dresses that will no longer be worn.
A rack was placed outside of the front office. Students hung their dresses on the rack at any time for the whole week.
Dresses of any size were accepted throughout the week. The dresses should not have any rips, tears or problems of any sort. They needed to be suitable for other people to wear at formal dances.
The donated dresses will be used for a good cause. They will be donated to girls in foster care. These girls are not able to afford a formal dress for school dances.
Student Council hopes to collect many dresses for the girls. Since they are not usually able to have formal dresses, they want to be able to have a wide variety for them to choose from.
Student Council will collect all of the dresses and send them to the children in foster care at the end of the week.
