Project PROMise™ Community Dress Drive

Help send local girls to their prom in style
February is Community DRESS DRIVE Month!

Project PROMise(tm) LogoProject PROMise™ is Highline School’s 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:

  • Burien Community Center: 14700 6th Ave SW, Burien
  • HomeTask: 611 SW 152nd St, Burien
  • Lucky U Consignment & Boutique: 915 SW 1652nd St, Olde Burien
  • Highline High School: 225 S. 152nd St, Burien
  • Mount Rainier High School: 22450 19th Ave S, Des Moines
  • Evergreen Campus: 830 SW 116th St, Seattle
  • Tyee Campus: 4424 S. 188th St, SeaTac

We accept all sizes but have a special need for small and large and plus sizes.  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).
