Operation Pretty and Polished
Good Morning 5D Community,
The MPD Office of Community Outreach is partnering with WPGC and State Farm to host Operation Pretty and Polished a Prom Dress / Tuxedo / Suit and accessory giveaway for inner city youth.
If YOU have formal wear (dresses, suits, tuxedos, shoes, handbags, etc.) that you want to donate, we welcome the support. All colors, styles and sizes are needed. (We could especially use sizes 14 and up) The more we collect the bigger the impact we can make in the lives of the youth who live in our Neighborhoods.
We are in great need. All formal wear is needed by April 15, 2009. The items should be Cleaned and on hangers. (Limited pick up available)
Don't let your old prom dress or tuxedo go to waste. Prom is an event to remember forever, so help local students have that special night!
On April 18, 2009 this formal wear will be distributed (FREE OF CHARGE) to young people who are prom bound! Did I mention that they will get them FREE?????
Fashion accessories for young ladies and young men:
Shoes (all sizes)
Stud and Cuff Link Sets
