New Circles x STC Help High School Students #BloomWithConfidence

Back to Trending

We have partnered with New Circles, a local organization that provides clothing, social connection and skill-building opportunities to newcomers and others living on a low income in Toronto, for their successful and innovative Prom Boutique initiative.

 

Prom is a special experience that marks a major transition in many young people’s lives. However, many graduating teens face economic barriers that make it challenging to celebrate this milestone event with their peers. Prom Boutique is an annual event which helps teens get fully outfitted for prom at no cost!

 

It takes a large network of people passionate about helping youth to stock the Prom Boutique with fashionable formal wear for the more than 500 teens who visit each year. This year, we are asking STC shoppers to support the cause by droping off donations of contemporary prom fashions at Guest Services from March 17th – April 27th.

 

Items to donate:

  • New or gently-worn dresses
  • Slim-cut suits, shirts and pants
  • Shoes
  • Accessories (including jewelry and handbags)
  • New makeup

 

As a thank you for every donation dropped off, shoppers can fill out a contest ballot which will enter them into a draw to win $500 in STC gift cards!

 

Contest Details

Date: March 17th – April 27th

Location: Guest Services

Ballot: 1 ballot per person for donation (inclusive of 1 or more items)

 

A winner will be chosen on April 28th, 2017 and all rules and regulations can be found here.
