The Pulse – Connect with the heartbeat of Effort.
Friday, September 22nd, 2017
The Glass Slipper Mission is celebrating our 4th year! We started collecting prom dresses and selling them at a nominal prices ($25) for young ladies that wouldn’t be able to afford going to their prom. Both humbled and thrilled when at the end of that prom event we had around $800. Prayer led us to start a scholarship for a senior at Fluvanna High School that would be continuing their education at a community college or trade school. We have continued to grow and have expanded our mission to provide a homecoming sale and vendor event in the fall! Our homecoming ($10 dresses) event is this Saturday at Effort from 9-1. The vendor event will be Nov 11th, 10-2. All proceeds go to The Glass Slipper scholarship.
We are always accepting donations of dresses, shoes, and accessories for our events, and we’re still in search of a few more vendors!
I’ll end with our Mission Statement:
The Glass Slipper’s mission is to help girls overcome financial obstacles related to their high school prom experience by collecting new and “gently worn” formal dresses and accessories and offering them at nominal prices. Our objective is to create a loving, respectful environment for girls to shop for the dress of their choice, and to demonstrate God’s love by making each girl feel special and cherished.
“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
