Organized by: Ira Coleman

THE STORY:

Button & Zipper, which serves Chicagoland's homeless and at-risk youth by collecting and distributing warm coats during the winter months, has continued its efforts throughout the spring for #DressUpTheGrad. We are seeking to help build the confidence of selected high school seniors during the 2016 graduation season. Last year was our inaugural effort. With the participation of our outstanding supporters, we will be providing these selected students with wardrobes to wear as they walk across the stage to accept their diplomas. We understand the hard work and commitment it takes to achieve this important milestone, and they deserve an opportunity to feel even more special about this accomplishment. We have released this project to the public throughout our networks and social media channels asking for them to help us by donating to this cause so we can make a difference in these young people's lives. Each recipient student will receive a button-up shirt, tie, and slacks for young men, and skirts and blouses or dresses for young ladies. We have been fortunate to earn the assistance from teachers, administrators, and people of influence in the education system, who have identified these individuals in need. Their thoughts and input helped us throughout this project. We hope you may share this project as you choose. Thank you in advance for your assistance and great consideration to helping further build the confidence of these high school Senior students!
