Once Upon A Time...
Edna Hill School PASS program has created a new program, called Once Upon a Time, to pass on gently used formal apparel to students in need. Can you help?
Here we are embarking upon an exciting time of year for so many kids in our community. It’s time for 8th grade dances, promotion, high school proms and graduation. However for some kids and families this can be a time of stress, as all these events take resources that some families don’t have. This is where Once Upon A Time comes into play. There are so many girls out there that have dresses and shoes from dances, cruises, special events etc. that they no longer wear; boys out there that have dress pants, shirts and shoes that they’ve grown out of. Imagine…once upon a time a community came together to make these special events possible for all; to take care of their own and to give back just by donating what they no longer wear. Is there any better fairy tale than that?
If you’re interested in changing lives and helping our local teens, you can drop off items at Edna Hill Middle School or for more information contact Traci Kemper at 513-6440 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
