Limos aren't just for A-list movie stars and music moguls. Continuing our limo prizing for the Prom For All campaign, we provided dress drive leader Cheryl Ingram with a 4 hour limo ride with friends. Here's what she had to say about her experience.
What was the hardest things about completing this drive?
I worked with a large panel of women from around the county and we had to come together for advertising, involving partnerships, and recruiting volunteers. The time and effort that we put into the drive was hard and challenging, but I am thankful that I had a wonderful committee of women to help make the project a success.
What made you do it?
New Mexico is a very poor state and I have worked on various committees throughout Las Cruces that are geared on giving back and supporting the community. Helping those in need is a very near and dear passion to my heart and I have geared my educational practices on that primary cause.
What is your advice to young people who want to do a dress drive?
Stay focused and work hard to achieve your goals. Make sure to get as many people involved as you can, the bigger support system you have the bigger success you will achieve. Also be innovative, do your research on what other organizations have done and really reach out to your communities, they all need us in one way or another.
