With the average cost of High School Proms rising each year, it is getting more difficult for students to enjoy purchasing a new dress and having a good time on a night that often means almost as much as their wedding day. This year Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital® is teaming up with our local High Schools to collect new or gently used prom dresses to help turn dresses into dreams. Please consider bring your gently used prom dresses and accessories to Claws & Paws, at 2556 E. Broadway, Pearland, TX 77581, to help make a memorable night for a local student.

Claws & Paws is working with Pearland High School, Turner High School, Dawson High School and Manvel High School. Pearland High School currently has a program called “Prom Closet” which helps deserving students receive a prom dress and accessories so that they can attend Prom. So start spring cleaning a little early, look in the back of the closet for those dresses and accessories collecting dust and give them a second chance to make someone smile.

We also must not forget about the young men looking to attend prom as well. tuxedos and dress shoes will also be accepted during this drive, so gentlemen that may have “outgrown” that old tuxedo, this is your opportunity to pay it forward. If you would prefer to make a monetary donations, those will be accepted as well.

We will be collecting dresses, tuxedos, evening shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories through March 7, 2014 so please help us make a student’s prom dream come true!
