Blair Center & United Way collaborate on The Glass Slipper Project; Help Students receive Prom Gowns

Posted January 21, 2016 at 2:42 pm

The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Blair Center is anxious to once again host The Glass Slipper Project, a program of United Way of Blair County. This program collects new and gently-worn prom, special occasion, and bridesmaid gowns to distribute, at no cost, to Blair County High School students through multiple boutique days held in February and March at the College’s Blair Center.

Many of Blair County’s high school students are economically disadvantaged and might not otherwise be able to afford a gown to attend their prom. The Glass Slipper Project helps to assure that the needs of these young women are met.

The boutique days will be held at the Pennsylvania Highlands Blair Center, located in the Logan Valley Mall next to Macy’s. There will be three boutique days, which are scheduled for:

  • Saturday, February 27th, from 12 – 4pm
  • Friday, March 18th, from 5:30 – 8:30pm
  • Saturday, March 19th, from 12 – 4pm

If you are interested in donating gently-worn prom and special occasion gowns and formal accessories for The Glass Slipper Project, donations are being accepted at the Penn Highlands Community College Blair Center. Gowns should be clean and currently-styled in misses/women’s sizes 0-26. In addition to gowns, formal shoes, purses, and accessories are also being accepted. Donations may be dropped off at the College until February 18th.
