Pueblo — There is a formal clothes rack on the second floor of Central High School, so students in Pueblo’s 60th district do not get dressed and go home.
“It started with a minimal dress. I had a teacher from another school and I’m currently teaching at this school, I brought a dress and said at that time. I gave the dress to a student who might need it. If you want, I have these dresses, “said Shirley Aliaga of Central. Community Advocate and CATique Director, Looking Back on Program Growth Over the Last Five Years.
Any student in District 60 can come to CA Tique and choose a dress or formal clothing for men with a $ 10.00 donation and ultimately to a charity of the program’s choice.
If students can’t afford $ 10.00, they can take the item home for free.
“The reaction we got, the facial expressions on them, and how excited they were were overwhelming.”
Alexis Pino, a senior at Central High School, found her perfect red dress in Catic.
“I’m excited because this year is actually my first year and it’s my last year,” said Pino.
Arriaga says this year’s reaction has been particularly strong since last year’s dance was cancelled.
“Parents who have been to multiple stores in the mall came to me. I wasn’t ready to dance again this year, so I came because there weren’t many orders. I found a dress here and it was very I am excited.”
CATique is always willing to accept donations of shoes, jewelery and men’s clothing as well as formal dresses.
