Cinderella Project accepting prom dresses
The Cinderella Project and Azalea Cleaners are partnering to collect prom dresses. The donated dresses will be given to high school juniors and seniors who could not otherwise afford a prom dress.
If cleaning out your closets is one of your New Year’s resolutions, the Cinderella Project and Azalea Cleaners can help.
The Cinderella Project and Azalea Cleaners will collect prom dresses throughout the month of January. Those dresses will be distributed for free to young women who cannot otherwise afford them.
“As our second year of service to the Shreveport community begins, we are excited to team up with Azalea Cleaners for this year’s dress drive,” Concetta King, co-direcotr of Cinderella Project of Shreveport, said in a news release. “We appreciate everyone who is involved with our organization and we anticipate great things to come for the future of the Cinderella Project.”
Dresses can be donated at any of the six Azalea Cleaners locations in Shreveport and Bossier City. All dresses should be dry cleaned and on hangars when donated. Both long and short dress styles are accepted. Visit the Cinderella Project website for complete donation guidelines and a map of the Azalea Cleaners locations.
The dresses that are collected will be given to junior and senior high school students attending Booker T. Washington, Fair Park, Green Oaks, Huntington and Woodlawn high schools. The Cinderella Project Dress Giveaway will be March 8, 2014, at the Boys and Girls Club.
