Student Council is collecting donations to help low-income students, who might otherwise miss out, have the wonderful high school prom experience. They will accept donations in room 503 until Wednesday, March 14. Students will receive the donations on Saturday, March 17 at the Zappos campus.

“The prom drive helps the big prom closet that Zappos and Project 150 host each year for students who may not be able to afford formal wear,” senior Darlyn Magana, event coordinator, said. “They can come and pick out a dress or a suit for their big night.”

Student council is teaming up with Project 150, Zappos, and Las Vegas Prom Closet to make the event happen. As an incentive for donating, they will give out raffle tickets to win a $100 Visa gift card. Students are encouraged to donate new or gently used prom or formal dresses, suits, shoes, ties, purses, makeup and styling products, gift certificates, or accessories.

“I did this project with another stuco member last year, and we saw the impact that it made for these kids,” Mangana said. “We decided to do a year two for it because we loved what Zappos and Project 150 have done and the impact they continue to make in our community for our teens.”
