A collection of prom dresses and men’s attire is underway to enable students at the Lakota Indian Reservation at Pine Ridge to have items for prom attendance. Due to high poverty levels, many students do not attend their prom as they can not afford suitable clothing for the event.
If you have suitable clothing you no longer need, please contribute to the Prom Attire Project which was originated by a JCU student. Needed items include dresses, shoes, purses, costume jewelry, ties, dress shirts, jackets. Your thoughtfulness will enable others to finish high school with one of life’s celebratory events – their prom! Please check your closets for these goods.
Items may be brought to Sociology and Criminology Department (AD 333) before leaving for break. Information about the project: https://friendsofpineridgereservation.org/organizations/oyate-teca-project/
