The Scholarship Committee is partnering with Brooklyn Prom Project, a non-profit organization that provides prom wear to all NYC graduating high school seniors. Starting Tuesday, February 14th, you can donate gently used or new prom wear: Gowns, dresses, men’s suits, tuxedos, shoes for girls and boys, ties, bow ties, jewelry, handbags, and plus sizes. For more information, visit our website, a member of the Scholarship Committee, Sis. Dorothy Crawford, or Sis. Peggy Thurman.
The partnership between the Scholarship Committee and the Brooklyn Prom Project is an excellent opportunity to support a worthy cause. Here are some reasons why it's important to support this project:
Prom is a milestone event for high school students. For many students, prom is a memorable event that marks the end of their high school career. However, for some students, the cost of prom wear can be a financial burden. By donating prom wear, you are giving students the opportunity to attend prom and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Access to formal wear can impact a student's self-esteem. Feeling confident and comfortable in their prom wear can be a crucial factor in a student's overall prom experience. By donating gently used or new prom wear, you are helping students feel confident and positive on this important occasion.
Donating to a non-profit organization helps to support the community. The Brooklyn Prom Project is a non-profit organization that is committed to providing prom wear to graduating high school students in NYC. By supporting this project, you are helping to strengthen the community and promote social equity.
Sustainable fashion is a responsible choice. By donating gently used prom wear, you are promoting sustainable fashion practices. Rather than letting these items go to waste, you are giving them a second life and reducing their impact on the environment.
In conclusion, supporting a project like the Brooklyn Prom Project is a meaningful way to give back to the community and make a difference in the lives of graduating high school students. By donating prom wear, you can help to create a positive and memorable prom experience for students who might not have had the opportunity otherwise.
