My Students

The students who attend my high school, a population of approximately 900 students, are of various socioeconomic backgrounds.

Because my school is relatively small, the students who lack financial resources to participate in extracurricular activities, athletics, and school social events, such as dances, are in stark contrast to those who do.

These economically disadvantaged students miss out on iconic experiences of high school.

The joy and relief on students' faces when they find the perfect clothing and accessories -- for free -- inspires me to coordinate this project year after year.

My Project

Many students at my high school cannot afford to buy the proper clothes to attend school dances. If they do not meet the dress requirements, they are not allowed into these events. During the past few years, I have collected over 300 dresses and many suits to pass on to these students at no cost to them.

I sponsor a Free Dress & Suit Shop three times per year to allow students to pick out a semi-formal or formal dress or a suit so they can experience a high school dance with their friends.

The sturdy garment racks will allow me to set up a true shopping experience for these students.

Since I do not have any type of budget for this project, I have fully funded it on my own. The garment racks that I am currently using are bending and breaking because they cannot hold the weight of the clothing.
