The Northern Marianas Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence will be hosting a clothing drive for new or gently used formal attire for Project PROM on Saturday, March 14, from 9am to 2pm.
The clothing drive will be located in the parking lot of Springs Plaza in Gualo Rai (across XO Market on Chalan Pale Arnold) and at Handbags, Etc. in Oleai.
The coalition and its sponsor, handbags, etc., will be accepting donations of new or gently used formal attire (gowns, tuxedos, shirts, slacks, dress shoes, heels, etc.), accessories (bowties, neckties, costume jewelry, purses, etc.), and other related items like makeup, hair supplies, or accessories. Cash donations and sponsors are also welcome.
“The coalition is very grateful for the support and donations from Pena House for Project PROM,” said the coalition in a statement.
Project PROM is part of the Sexual Assault Awareness Month campaign. It is a program designed to engage high school juniors and seniors in sexual violence prevention and advocacy. Project PROM also aims to provide these youth advocates with formal attire and accessories for their prom.
CNMI high school juniors and seniors interested in being part of Project PROM may submit an application to the NMCADSV Office by 5pm on Friday, April 17, 2015. Applications are available online on the Project PROM Facebook page www.facebook.com/projprom, at most schools, and at the NMCADSV office.
