Generosity in action

As the school year nears closure, three events are set at Logan High School in Union City: graduation, Junior Prom, and Senior Ball. The Princess Club and the Humanitarian Assistance Club, aware of the economic downturn, work to help low-income students.
The two organizations complement one another. The Princess Club collects "gently used" prom gowns, cocktail dresses, and formal men's attire. The Humanitarian Assistance Club sponsors a Cap and Gown drive. It is collecting Logan graduation caps and gowns and also middle school graduation gowns.
The goal of the Princess Club is to ensure all students who wish to, can attend the dances, feeling a bit of "glam." Humanitarian Assistance, equally generous, plans to help students in need, lower their graduation expenses.
Community can help with donations to Logan. Also, the Princess Club is looking for a local tuxedo rental agency to help provide reduced or free tuxedo rentals for the young men. This week the Princess Club had good news. It benefited by a $500 grant from the New Haven Schools Foundation.
The Junior Prom is April 30 and Senior Ball is June 4. Logan High School's graduation is scheduled for June 18, so there is still time left to donate. Donations can be taken to Logan's front office from March 18 until April 28. Another drop-off spot is Paddy's Coffee House.
So help out if you can. This is a beneficent reason to clean our closets.
