This is our 3rd Annual Prom Drive that supports the less fortunate students, who attend New Haven’s and Hamden’s High Schools to have a unforgettable Prom Night.

Our Goals

  • Support between 25-50 students in the Greater New Haven Area 

  • Raise $30,000 for Dresses, Tuxedo rentals, to cover tickets and cosmetics cost

The cost of Tuxes and Dresses have become very expensive over the years. Also, to include shoes, hairstyling, nails, makeup and transportation. Prom is a celebration of their accomplishment of earning their High School Diploma. They shouldn’t have to miss out due to the financial restrictions their families currently have. Bringing the community together for this initiative felt necessary and intuitive. Most of us remember the pressure and stress that comes with getting ready for Prom or the reget after missing out on a one time event due to financial hardship. Let’s come together as a community to ensure that they'll be celebrating their night the right way, dancing, eating, and laughing among peers.

Community means more than just your next door neighbor. The Meaning of community becomes more uplifting and empowering when we come together to expand resources, create a future for our young and turning a compassionate neighborhood into a thriving city. Our mission is dependent on contributions and efforts of everybody in the community.
