One Upon A Prom

Campus Activities Board members say that the opportunity to meet high school students in the community is one of the benefits of Anne Arundel Community College’s Once Upon a Prom event.

Anne Arundel Community College Student Engagement Office and Campus Activities Board once again are collecting prom-style dresses and accessories for the spring prom season to help local girls who might not otherwise be able to afford to dress up.

Drop off all donations by March 1 in the Student Union Room 202 on AACC’s Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Dresses should be gently used, clean, free of stains or tears and preferably on a hangar. Shoes and accessories must be in “like new” condition.

The donations will be given out during an event to be scheduled in the spring that will allow AACC students the opportunity to connect with high school girls in the local community.

Counselors at local high schools will receive invitations for students identified in need to look for a prom dress, shoes and accessories. For information, visit www.aacc.edu/studentlife/onceupon.cfm or contact Kimberly Herrera, coordinator of Student Life at 410-777-2043 or by email at [email protected].
