St. Francis Cheerleaders Donate Dresses

Girls from the St. Francis High School Cheer Team picked up gowns from our thrift store last Tuesday in hopes of providing an opportunity for young women in underserved communities to attend their prom or formal without the financial burden of buying a dress.

The girls come from Mayfield Senior, Immaculate Heart, Flintridge Sacred Heart, Alverno Heights Academy, Sacred Heart of Jesus, and Ramona Convent. This is the first year they have spearheaded this dress drive, but they plan to make it a yearly activity.

Thank you St. Francis Cheer for your compassion and drive to help those in need!

If you would like to participate in this drive, please reach out to Bridgid Sloyan at bsloyan@sfhs.net
