Thanks to a generous donation from the Cinderella Dress Outlet of Omaha, Nebraska, Marshalltown High School juniors and seniors will have the opportunity to receive a free Homecoming dress for the dance this fall. Also, freshman and sophomores can receive a dress for $15.
The dress giveaway event will be at 10:30 a.m. at the MHS cafeteria on Saturday, September 8. Dresses will be available to try on and select at that time. First come, first served. All students must bring their MHS student ID to get in the door. Students will get to keep the dresses.
MHS would like to thank Terri Smieja, owner of Cinderella Dress Outlet, for these generous donations. The idea came about to donate the dresses following the tornado in Marshalltown to help families. The dress giveaway is open to all juniors and seniors at MHS, not just tornado victims.
MHS is also accepting gently used dresses to give away to students. To donate dresses, drop them off at the main office at MHS.
The Homecoming dance will be on Saturday, September 29 at MHS.
