“I didn’t think I would be able to go to prom.” Those tearful and heartfelt words I was recently told by an area high school senior during Cinderella’s Closet. This is a program where we collect gently used prom dresses, shoes, and accessories for area high school students in need.
This year, we provided 58 students with items. Since our program started we have helped a total of 454 young ladies. This year’s students were from Kenai Central High School, Connections, Soldotna High, Nikiski High, Kenai Alternative High, Ninilchik High, and Homer High.
A special thank you to Kenai Performers/Curtain Call Consignment, Juan Marquez and Maria Marquez in Barstow, California for collecting items to donate. Michele Clapp with Premier Jewelry Designs donated over $2,280 worth of jewelry to the young ladies.
The program would not be possible without the help of students from KCHS and Soldotna High School volunteering with the setup, help during, and cleanup. Thank you to the staff at our schools for getting the word out about the program. Finally, to our community for all of your generous donations.
Items for Cinderella’s Closet 2016 are being collected now at the Soldotna High School main office. Let’s help make memories for more of our area teens!
