Halton school board seeks donations of prom clothes


High school social workers with the Halton District School Board are trying to help students look their best at their Grade 12 prom this year.

They’ve launched Fashion Forward, an event aimed at providing students with new or gently-used formal wear.

The board is looking for donated prom clothing, such as party dresses, formal gowns, formal suits, dress shirts and ties.

The items — which should be current styles, clean and on hangers — can be dropped off at various schools before March 27.

All current students will be invited to open houses in April to choose from the donations.

See the list below for drop-off locations.
