Paloma Valley High Program Provides Free Formal Wear

Through a special program, Paloma Valley High School is supplying formal wear free of charge to students and staff for Prom, NJROTC Military Ball and other formal events.

The Wildcat Formal Exchange is sponsored by the PTSA, which is accepting donations of male and female formal wear, new or gently used. Students come and shop like any other boutique. Some of the dresses may need cleaning or some minor alterations, but most of the shoppers leave with suitable formal wear.

The exchange is in great need of bow ties, cummerbund, and white shirts for the males. Please contact PTSA President Jennafer Griswold at or Program Coordinator Robin Seeley at


  1. how long would I have to donate? I have my old prom dress which I wore when I attended Paloma and also I have men's white dress shirts

  2. Donations are accepted anytime. Prom is May 11th and our last event is graduation. Donations are accepted in the school front office during business hours (7am - 3:45pm). We appreciate all donations - and are in need of men's attire. Please contact me at if those hours are not convenient and I can arrange pick-up. Thank you for your interest in our program - it is only with donations we can continue to help our students create wonderful memories who may not be able to attend formal events otherwise. Thank you again
