Cover Me Project
In New Mexico, approximately 1 of 4 children live in poverty and approximately 1 of 32 are juniors and seniors in high school. Most of these kids will not attend one of the most memorable nights in high school due to not having a gown or a decent pair of pants and/or shirts.
APS is helping to alleviate this issue and you can help too! Last year, there were approximately 110 young ladies that were able to receive dresses through this program but there were approximately 134 young ladies that were in need. This year young men will also be included in receiving outfits to wear to prom.
Please clean out your closets for gently used and cleaned formals, as well as, pants, shirts, suits, and ties. You will find that if you tell the dry cleaners what you are doing, they are more than willing to discount the cleaning fee. Please use the contact information below to arrange pick-up/drop-off times. April 1st is the deadline to donate.
