DRESS TO IMPRESS FUNDRAISER
Is your closet getting overly filled with all of those dress clothes you wear to school dances and other functions? Well the chance to get rid of them has come. Carson High is doing a Dress to Impress Drive. This is where you can bring in dresses, suits, ties, or any other fancy clothing. These clothes will be used as a closet for anyone who can’t get fancy clothing to wear to a suit or dress function. You are allowed to keep the item or you can choose to return it. It’s up to you. Clothing can be dropped off at the Student Council room or the Student Store. Start digging through your closet Carson High. For more information, contact Ann Britt at 283-1910.
