YWCA Enid and everyone who contributed to the YWCA's Project Cinderella deserves praise.
Project Cinderella provides prom dresses, shoes, and accessories for the forthcoming prom season to participants from middle school, high school, and A Night to Unite. The objective is to give all girls the opportunity to experience prom, winter formals, and other dances as princesses.
Every person who shops at Project Cinderella receives a free dress, a pair of shoes, and accessories, which they may either keep or donate to the closet. The store is set up like a boutique and is open several times a year.
On January 4, 11, and 18, middle school and junior high students can visit Project Cinderella by appointment from 3:30 to 6 p.m. For those attending A Night to Unite, an annual prom for individuals with special needs, Project Cinderella will be accessible, by appointment, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on January 18 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on January 25 and February 1.
In February, Project Cinderella will announce its hours and dates for high school students in need of prom attire. Call (580) 234-7581 to schedule an appointment to shop at Project Cinderella, which is housed inside the YWCA Enid at 525 S. Quincy.
Anyone interested in donating can do so at the loading dock of the YWCA Enid.
For the many folks who might not be able to purchase a new prom dress, this is a fantastic program.
Thumbs up for all that 4RKids accomplishes.
To empower people with developmental challenges, 4RKids was established in 2003. Its goals are to increase public understanding of people with developmental disabilities and to give special needs children and adults in Northwest Oklahoma access to employment, education, and social and recreational opportunities.
4RKids launched 4RDesigns, a bespoke screen printing business, at the beginning of December.
T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, hoodies, and other items can be screen printed by 4RDesigns; the setup price covers the option of up to three colors and an hour of artwork creation (if the design is not already provided). Discounts will be offered to regular customers and quantity buyers.
All money earned is donated to the 4RKids Foundation.
We adore 4RKids' work and anticipate wonderful things for the screen printing business.
More than $11,700 was donated by donors to the Enid News & Eagle's Community Christmas Card, helping to feed hungry kids in our neighborhood.
The News & Eagle's Community Christmas Card accepts donations for the Food For Kids initiative. Readers who donate at least $1 per name have their names printed on the card, a full-page advertisement that runs in the News & Eagle on Christmas Day.
Participating schools receive pre-assembled food kits as part of the program at no cost to the school or the student. The roughly ten different items in the food bags are intended to give weekend nourishment and calories to children who experience frequent hunger.
Since it costs roughly $250 to feed one child for a whole year, the money raised will feed close to 50 children.
We appreciate all of the donations.
