Feburary is Dress Drive Month in Highline!

2012 Project PROMise(tm) For many high school girls, 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. This year, thanks to the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence, a number of high school students will be going to the prom in beautiful dresses donated by local organizations and members of the community.  They will also have opportunity to select shoes, bags and other accessories contributed by the local community.

In its 4th Annual Project PROMise™, the Highline Schools Foundation collects beautiful new and gently worn formal dresses and gowns, shoes, and accessories from throughout our community and invites high school students in need to “go shopping” for the perfect dress 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.

Bring your clean, new or gently used prom dresses, prom jewelry, and prom shoes to the following locations by March 1.

  • Aviation High School
  • Evergreen High School
  • Highline High School
  • Highline Schools Foundation office (located inside ERAC)
  • Mount Rainier High School
  • Puget Sound Skills Center
  • Tyee High School

We accept all sizes but have a special need for small and large and plus sizes. We also need accessories including shoes, handbags, and jewelry!

Don’t have a dress but would like to help? Donations and sponsorships are welcome and needed! Call the Highline Schools Foundation office at 206-248-5196 or email [email protected]
