Does your daughter have a prom dress that probably won't be worn again? Would you like to help make someone's prom special? How about recycling that dress? Become part of a community-wide project and help an important community agency --The Domestic Violence Clearinghouse and Legal Hotline (DVCLH).
The Domestic Violence Clearinghouse and Legal Hotline is sponsoring the project Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Prom dresses donated by high school girls will be collected and sold at a pre-prom season sale in February. The community is invited to come and shop for a good cause.
The Domestic Violence Clearinghouse and Legal Hotline offers support and services to hundreds of woman and girls in Hawaii who suffer from abuse. The DVCLH provides education, telephone information, and referral and assistance to victims by helping them navigate their way to safety as well as by supporting them on their way through the legal system, including going to court.
On our campus, the dress drop-off site is the Luke Center for Public Service during the week of November 14 - 18, 2005. Please go through your closets and join us in our participation in this community project. If you have questions, contact Eileen McCool (K - 6 Counselor) at 945–1327, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
