Second District Police Collecting Formal Wear for Teens

Photo by Sean McGrath
We're happy to pass along this request for donated formal wear for teens that was posted on the Second District Police Listserv:
Prom season is approaching, but for many teens in DC, this is a time of sadness. They want to attend their prom, but do not have prom attire to wear. Yearly, WPGC 95.5 (in association with State Farm Insurance, Once Upon a Prom, The Boys and Girls Club of Washington, and El Zol 107.9) has been sponsoring a gown and tux collection and giveaway for these kids. They call their drive "Operation Pretty and Polished."
The giveaway event will be held on April 21 from 9am - 3pm at the Boys and Girls Club at 4103 Benning Road NE. A current student ID is required to take part in the event.

If you have a clean gown or a clean tux (additions are needed: shirt, studs, cummerbund) or dress suit that you no longer need, please consider donating to this clothing drive. All sizes are needed from size 0 to size XXX.

There will be a box set up for donations at the Second District Police Station at 3320 Idaho Avenue, NW (behind the Giant at Wisconsin and Macomb). We collected 30 gowns from this neighborhood last year. Let's see if we can top that this year.

Please help turn a frown into a smile. Give these teens a chance to attend their prom.
