Round up your Purchase at Macy's Fair Oaks!

For the next two weeks, you can round up your purchase at the Macy's with Furniture at Fair Oaks Mall and support Educate Fairfax at the same time! Proceeds will support the prom dress store run every spring by students at Centreville High School.  

Since 2006, the dress shop has helped hundreds of financially challenged students attend prom in style each spring by providing dresses and accessories at no cost to students.

Any area student—not just those from Fairfax County Public Schools—who do not have the funds to purchase a prom dress may choose from hundreds of new dresses donated by Macy’s. They must show a valid student ID, or other form of school identification, to select a free dress. Funds from your purchase this October will provide other items needed to run the store and sustain this valuable service to our students. Thank you!
