A collection of prom-formal dresses and men’s formal 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 of any vintage and all sizes are needed and appreciated!
Items may be brought to Sociology and Criminology Department (AD 333) at the beginning of the year and into the start of spring semester. Information about the project: https://friendsofpineridgereservation.org/organizations/oyate-teca-project/
