On Tuesday, officials with the El Paso Public Library’s Clardy Fox Branch announced a special clothing drive for local students.
The branch is currently holding a formal wear drive to collect prom or formal wear items. The clothing and accessories will be donated to local high school students who are unable to afford formal wear for their special events.
“The Library wants to give every student, regardless of economic condition, the opportunity to dress well for what will be a very special moment in their young lives,” said El Paso Public Library Interim Director Norma Martinez.
Any prom “gear” or formal wear for males and females will be accepted. Residents can donate dresses, dress shirts and pants, dress shoes, ties, jewelry, belts, purses, and any other accessories in clean and wearable condition.
Donations may be dropped off at any library branch location now through the end of May during normal business hours.
Students in need of clothing and accessories can visit the Clardy Fox Library Branch from 10 a.m. to noon or 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. every Saturday.
The items are free of charge and students only need to provide a form of identification to select items.
For more information on the formal wear drive, call the Clardy Fox Branch Library at (915) 212-0456.
