Prom is expensive, and many families have more pressing priorities in this economy.  That’s why OLCHS in conjunction with the school’s Parent Teacher Student Association will offer Cinderella’s Closet, a program designed to assist our students get prom gear at rock-bottom prices.  Graduation and spring party dresses are also welcome. All proceeds will help fund transportation expenses for the SADD Post Prom Lake Michigan Cruise.  So clean out those closets to help make a girl’s wish come true. 

Cinderella’s Closet is a collection of lightly used formal dresses, shoes, accessories, and unopened make-up for students.  All styles, sizes, and colors are welcome. Donations can be dropped off in the OLCHS District Office 123 during business hours (7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.) through January 26, 2018. If you are not able to drop off dresses during this timeframe, please contact Maria Vanderwarren to make other arrangements. A tax form is available for all donations.
