On April 4 and April 6, 53 at-risk high school juniors and seniors were able to select a complete donated prom ensemble at either Pacific Crossroads Church, Hope for L.A or our Olive Crest office in Bellflower. The smiles on their faces spoke volumes as they proudly assembled their “looks,” something they otherwise would not have been able to afford.
Thanks to everyone who made it possible for teens to pick out the perfect prom outfit!
Thank you to Wells Fargo for providing dozens of volunteers; to Christina Colome for donating more than 100 prom dresses and volunteers to set up, do make-up and hair, and help teens pick out their outfits; to Macerich Los Cerritos Center for contributing $1,000; and to Pacific Crossroads Church for providing such a beautiful venue.
Everyone involved gave hope and joy to the kids who attended. We can’t wait for Prom 2020!
