There are still a few spots left to sign up for Project PROMise, where students can browse through a collection of new & gently used clothing items.

For many high school students, going to the prom is an event anticipated for years – but not going to the prom because the family can’t afford a formal dress can be devastating.

Project PROMise helps provide formal dresses, shoes, and accessories to girls in need in Highline Public Schools.

This Highline Schools Foundation program provides free dresses, suits, shoes and accessories to students across Highline.

This year’s Project PROMise will take place on Friday, April 14, and Saturday, April 15, 2023 at Puget Sound Skills Center in Burien (map below).


Here’s a video about Project PROMise:
