Prom Bring It, Inc. (PBI) is a Virginia nonstock not-for-profit corporation formed on November, 2011. Building on an informal volunteer program begun by parents at Hermitage High School in Henrico County, Virginia, PBI intends to provide appropriate clothing for high school students who would like to attend a prom or other special school event but do not have the financial means to do so. PBI also intends to offer instruction in related areas such as proper dress, hair, nails, makeup and skin care; etiquette and personal relationships; resume writing; job interview skills and other tools necessary for personal and professional success.
During its first year of operation, PBI plans to establish partnerships with area department stores, specialty clothiers and discounters to provide dress clothes and formal wear for financially needy high school students, male and female, in the Central Virginia area. Students may be referred by school counselors or social services agencies or may apply through PBI’s website, currently in development. PBI is negotiating with a local retail landlord for space to establish a centralized collection and distribution point and a base for presenting other educational programs.
