Spring Prom celebrations are just around the corner and members of Durham’s Police Service are organizing two special events that will provide young people with the resources they need.
Our 6th Annual Gowns for Girls provides young girls with dresses and accessories for prom. Many do not have the economic resources to attend as some dresses can cost upwards of $800. Additional expenses are then required for shoes, hair services and accessories.
In addition to Gowns for Girls, the 2nd Annual Suits for Youths will outfit young people with suits, ties and other accessories they can use for both prom and for job interviews when school is finished.
Both events are in need of donations that can be dropped off at any police station in Durham Region. Gowns for Girls is in need of new or gently used dresses, shoes, accessories and gift certificates for hair salons, make-up, spa services and florists. Gown donations can also be made at One Love, One Dream Bridal in Courtice.
Suits for Youths is in need of new or gently used suits, jackets, pants, shirts, ties and bow ties. Donations can also be dropped at the Oshawa Centre Guest Services.
Gowns for Girls takes place Tuesday, April 16 and Wednesday April 17, 2019, at Bobby Orr Public School, 7 Waterloo Street, Oshawa, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Suits for Youths is taking place on Wednesday, April 17 and Thursday April 18, 2019, at the Oshawa Centre, 419 King St W, Oshawa, Food Court Entrance to lower level, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
