Spring Cleaning for your Closet! Christ Episcopal Church is seeking donations of prom dresses, suits, and accessories (jewelry, shoes, men’s dress shoes, shirts, dress pants and jackets, ties and bowties) to help students in need in area high schools attend their proms. All items, as well as gift cards or monetary donations to be used for salons, florists, restaurants and transportation, can be dropped off at the church’s main door at 112 Charles Street (facing onto Charles Street) on Saturday, March 23 from 9-1, or Sunday, March 24 from 9-1. The church is located next to the Courthouse.
With some 750 children in Charles County public schools homeless or in transitory living, there is a great need. “This is a tangible way to show young people who often feel overlooked that they matter, that we care that they participate in this central rite of passage in high school life,” says the Rev. Steve Seely, Deacon at Christ Church. There are various programs of support for elementary age children and families, but fewer for high school age students at risk. Christ Church is developing programs to reach out to some of these students, starting with Prom4All. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
