For this year’s Northport – East Northport Superintendent’s Conference Day, as you change over your clothes from summer to fall and head into your closets, please keep PROJECT PROM in mind. Last year, members of the community started Project Prom, a program which collects gently used prom, bridesmaid and formal dresses, to support any student that might not otherwise be able to afford a prom dress. Project Prom was able to support students from the Northport, Hauppauge, and Brentwood communities with these generous donations helping to make their prom a special night to remember.
If you wish to donate, dresses can be dropped off on Superintendent’s Day at Northport High School, in Reception or at East Northport Middle School, in the counseling center.
