Donations Requested for the Glass Slipper Project from Dr. Mary Shuttlesworth Linda A Leahey 2/14/2017 11:16:46 AM

Donations Requested for the Glass Slipper Project


The Psychology Club and the Physical Therapy Assistant Club are partnering with the Glass Slipper Project, a program of United Way of Blair County, to collect new and gently-worn prom, special-occasion, and bridesmaid gowns. We will also accept donations of men's formal wear. 

Please drop off any donations in the Cosgrave lobby on Friday, Feb. 17 from 11-1:30. 


Collected gowns  are then distributed to Blair County high school students who may not otherwise be able to afford prom attire. Approximately 50% of the county’s high school students are economically disadvantaged; therefore, donations of formal wear and accessories are greatly needed.


Thank you!
