Soldotna High School is collecting formal wear and accessories for the district’s Cinderella’s Closet program. The program, which provides free dresses, shoes and accessories to district area high school students, is also looking for a new home, a Soldotna High School news brief states.
The program has provided formal wear to more than 850 people in the last 11 years. Last year, 145 people were provided outfits for both prom and homecoming. Donations of gently used prom dresses, suits of all sizes, dress shirts, men’s dress shoes and accessories are accepted year-round at Soldotna High School or Soldotna Prep between 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Donations outside of the central peninsula can be dropped by the closest school in the district.
All sizes are welcome, but dresses sized 12 to 18 are particularly needed, the brief said.
A new location is needed for the opening of Cinderella’s Closet. Finding a space that can also be used to store donations year-round is also needed.
“We really care about this project because we see year after year how many students we have been able to help,” the brief said. “We confide in the support of our community for finding a suitable location for hosting the Cinderella’s Closet of our school district.”
