The Paradise Valley Education Association collected more than 300 dresses, shoes and accessories that benefited pre-selected high school students in PVSchools.

On March 5 and March 8, the students went “shopping” for their formal wear at the Foothills Facility. Dresses and shoes, available in a variety of styles and sizes, were donated by teachers, students and friends of PVSchools.

Local businesses offered hair styling services and small gifts that were included in “swag” bags. PVEA members and volunteers were on hand to steam and alter the dresses on site for the students, according to a press release .
