Project PROMise™ is the Highline Schools Foundation’s outreach program in which new and gently used formal dresses are collected from our community and given to local students in need so they can attend their prom in style! For the 6th Annual Project PROMise™, the Highline Schools Foundation is collecting beautiful new and gently worn formal dresses and gowns, shoes and accessories from throughout our community. Highline School District high school students in need will be invited to “go shopping” this spring, for the perfect dress and accessories for their prom. The dresses are offered to the girls to keep, or they may return them to the Foundation to be used the following year. Clean, new or gently used prom dresses, jewelry, and shoes can be dropped off at the Highline Schools Foundation office (located inside ERAC) or the following schools and locations by March 1, 2014:

“We accept all sizes but have a special need for small and large and plus sizes,” reads an announcement. “Since proms are held in May and June, spring colors are preferred and we also need accessories including shoes, handbags, jewelry and wraps, and undergarments (like Spanx and strapless bras).” Sponsorships are also welcomed and needed! Call the Highline Schools Foundation office at 206-248-5196 or email [email protected] for more information or to arrange a pick-up of dresses.
