Highschool graduation is an important time to celebrate with friends and family but it can also be quite costly.  

Cochrane Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) is currently accepting donations of formal wear for the class of 2025 to ensure that all graduates can celebrate in style. 

"Grad Glow Up is an opportunity for the Cochrane community to come together and support students who may not have the means to purchase formal attire for their big night." stated Cochrane FCSS. 

Donations are being accepted for dresses and gowns, suits and jackets, and dress shirts and pants.

Several drop off locations have been set up: 

The Clothesline

122 Fourth Avenue W.


Helping Hands Store

244C River Avenue


Cochrane FCSS

1, 209 Second Avenue W.


There will also be a Grad Glow Up event coming up on March 1, 2025. This will allow grade 12 students to access the formal wear ahead of their graduation ceremony.
