Hello all, Aimee here, and I'm not blogging on behalf of Kline May Realty and our family of agents today because today's blog post is brought to you by our very own Karen Stevenson Carpenter, who is an agent out of our Fishersville office:
The Cinderella Project is gearing up for this year! For those of you who may not know about this cause, The Cinderella Project helps provide young adults in the Shenandoah Valley with attire for their Junior and Senior Proms, all free of charge. We offer this service to high schools throughout the our area, from Central and Stonewall up north all the way to Rockbridge in the south.
Prom-going teens in need of assistance are screened by the guidance departments of their local high school and then given an invitation that gets them into the Project. Young ladies are offered a dress, jewelry, shoes, evening bag, and makeup; gents are offered a shirt, pants, jacket, belt, shoes, ties, and personal hygiene products.
All the stock for this project is acquired by donation of goods and cash. This is the first year, though, that The Cinderella Project is a 501c3, which means all donations are tax deductible. Did you know that Kline May Realty on Evelyn Byrd Avenue in Harrisonburg and Kline May Realty on Jefferson Highway in Fishersville will be a drop-off point for donated goods? So, as spring cleaning commences, I ask that you might take the time to clean out your closets for items that might be appropriate for donation.
