Just in time for prom season, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) invited deserving students back to its Prom Boutique. Pre-selected female and male students will have the opportunity to visit the Prom Boutique to select dresses, suits and dress shoes, as well as accessories for their prom events in May.
Community members and organizations donated the free items in order to help students who cannot afford to buy prom gear and therefore may not attend this important event.
Prom Boutique assists students in fragile economic positions and those who are part of Project UP-START – M-DCPS program that supports students who are in the Homeless Assistance Program or who are living in transition. The Shop at Lindsey Hopkins Technical College will continue to serve students in need year- round with clothing, backpacks, school supplies, food, toiletries and more.
