Help Fulfill a Teen Dream! The H.O.P.E. Foundation (Helping Others Prosper Economically) and It’s Time to Pray Ministry will be having a prom dress and tux drive at The Salvation Army, 838 Alta Street, Redlands, CA on Saturday, March 17, 2012, 10am – 1pm. If it rains, we will be set up inside the Salvation Army.

The drive will benefit the “Fit for a Queen” Prom Dress & Tux Event which will provide prom attire and accessories to high school seniors who cannot afford them. Prom attire collected will allow over 100 local high school seniors to come “shop” free of charge for a dress, tux, shoes, and accessories. The Fit for a Queen Prom Dress & Tux event is sponsored by The Salvation Army in Redlands, and will hold the event at the Salvation Army facility in Redlands on Saturday, April 14, 2012.

Requested donation items are for new or nearly new formal dresses, tuxedos, men’s suits, ladies and men’s formal shoes, shawls, shrugs, ties, cummerbunds, costume jewelry, and cuff links. Please drive by and drop off your tax-deductible donations. Donations will also be accepted at the Redlands Salvation Army facility in the lobby Monday through Friday during business hours. Donation boxes are also set up during business hours at New 2 You Consignment Shop at 22400 Barton Rd., Ste. 3, Grand Terrace, CA, the Redlands YMCA, 500 E. Citrus Ave., Redlands, and the Redlands Community Center, 111 W. Lugonia Ave., Redlands, CA.

We are also looking for volunteers for the positions of personal shoppers, runners, registration, alterations, greeters, set-up, tear- down, and decorations for the event on April 14, 2012.
