In anticipation of prom and formals-to-come, M-A’s Key Club is hosting the Princess Project for the month of February. The Club is encouraging local residents to donate gently used party dresses at the front office for students who cannot afford to buy their own dresses for dances.

The project runs through Feb. 24; accessories are needed in addition to dresses. All donations will benefit M-A students of M-A and allow them to enjoy school dances like the rest of their peers.

The Princess Project is only one of many events run by the M-A Key Club, which is a part of the larger international Key Club family. Currently, the club is funding the education of Charity Njeri, a high school student in Kenya. To learn more about the Princess Project and the club’s activities, visit the club’s website or contact co-presidents Kiko Aebi and Taryn Thiele-Sardina at [email protected]]
