On Wednesday and Thursday, May 1-2, high school students at Texans Can Academies’ Dallas campuses in need of prom attire went shopping through donated items from the schools’ Project Prom Drive, to select what they wanted to take home with them and wear to prom.
The Texans Can Academies’ Dallas schools hosted a drive to receive formal attire donations to benefit students at their six Dallas area campuses. The development team for Texans Can Academies’ Dallas campuses accepted donations that included dresses, suits, dress shirts, jewelry, ties and dress shoes at the Texans Can Academy - Dallas Oak Cliff campus.
Tables were set up at Texans Can Academy - Dallas Oak Cliff with formal wear items sorted for students to choose from. Over 100 students picked out formal wear to make their prom dreams come true.
Over 83% of Texans Can Academies students and their families live in poverty. This drive helped the students’ prom dreams come true by picking out the perfect outfit all at no cost to the students. The benefitted campuses include Carrollton / Farmer’s Branch, Dallas Grant East, Dallas Oak Cliff, Dallas Pleasant Grove, Dallas Ross Avenue and Garland.
