We feel like the belle of the ball. One of our recipients, a public school in Brooklyn, has invited us to their senior prom. Representatives from the school have visited the warehouse frequently during the spring to gather much needed materials to make the upcoming prom a special night.
In previous years, the school paid a party rental service to rent chairs for the prom, and was forced to pass this cost on to their students. This year they received 0ver 60 matching chairs (donated to MFTA by Google) and are able to reduce the cost of attending the prom substantially. The school also received fabrics to cover their tables and set a dramatic scene for the night.
