The following letter was submitted by Debra Pilkington, a board member of the Providence Teachers Union and coordinator of the Providence Princess program.
Dear PPSD colleagues,
On Saturday, April 11, PTU held our 11th annual Providence Princess Prom Dress giveaway. Providence Princess provides complimentary gowns, shoes and accessories to Providence high school students. This year, we outfitted 209 young ladies with the help of your participation in Dress Down Day and through your dress donations!
After this year’s event, we have officially outfitted over 3,000 young ladies since we started the program! I want to thank each and every one of you who supported Providence Princess to ensure our students look beautiful when they attend their prom.
Check us out on Facebook at Providence Princess. The young ladies will be posting photos of themselves in their gowns when at their prom.
Thanks again for your continued support of Providence Princess!
Providence Princess Coordinator
