Prom Project Hamilton was created by the HWDSB Foundation to assist students in need with formal wear for their proms, graduations, formals and other special events so they can attend feeling stylish, confident and proud. Prom Project Hamilton does not require proof of financial need, and promotes a positive and inclusive environment, created to support those students with formal needs who may choose not to attend their special event because of financial challenges. All items are new or gently used from the private and business communities and are free of charge. All clients are treated with respect, dignity and are assisted by volunteers who are dedicated to supporting students and making the experience an impactful journey towards their upcoming milestone event.

For more information, email: foundation@hwdsb.on.ca

Prom Project Hamilton How to Help Recruit

Volunteering

This program depends on volunteers to help us recruit the items needed, to assist with cash donations to run the program and to be there at one of the two sites to make the day and as special as possible for our visiting students. We need general volunteers and seamstresses per site.
