For the past several months, Hill Top Prep’s Employability and Transition class has been collecting new and gently worn dresses. Through their diligent work, they’ve brought in over 350 dresses to date. These dresses will now be sold to raise funds for the The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization focused on suicide prevention efforts amongst LGBTQ+ youth.
The sale will be held on two separate weekends, February 26-27 and March 5-6, from 12:00-4:00 p.m, at Community Partnership School in Philadelphia. Short dresses will be on sale for $10, while long dresses will be $20.
