PLAINFIELD, NJ – Plainfield Public Schools will partner with the National Organization of Black Women in Law Enforcement (NOBWLE) and the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) to help sponsor the“Cinderella PROM Project,” a giveaway that helps to offset the cost of prom for Plainfield Public Schools’ girls and to provide community support.
This prom giveaway will be held on Saturday, May 13th at Plainfield High School from 12:00 to 3:00 pm. The event is free and open to graduating high school seniors with school I.D. or transcript. The students may select one gown per person. Plainfield High School proms will be held June 9th.
NOWBLE and NOBLE, as well as donors such as La Perfection Hair, All About Beauty Nail Salon & Spa and NBG Salon, will provide over 200 gowns, shoes, jewelry, and accessories for the young ladies.
“The goal of the Cinderella Prom Project/Prom Giveaway is to assist young ladies to cover the costs of their gown, jewelry, shoes and accessories,” said Sgt. Mahasin El Amin, of the Plainfield Police Division’s Domestic Violence/Megan’s Law Unit. “We want to give back to our community and let the young ladies know their community supports them.”
Acting Superintendent of Plainfield Public Schools, Dr. Debra J. Sheard said, “The senior prom is a rite of passage for many teens that signals the beginning of a more independent life and their graduation from High School. This is a special time for students and we thank our black women organizations for their support to help this come true for students who may not have the means to cover the costs of attending Prom.”
