The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service (SSMPS) are pleased to announce the fourth year of Sault Ste. Marie & Algoma District OPERATION ALL DRESSED UP! 2017 assisting Grade 8 and Grade 12 girls prepare for upcoming graduation ceremonies.

The OPP and SSMPS are looking for donations of gently used and or new formal dresses to assist with this initiative. Anyone wanting to donate accessories towards making a young girl’s special day memorable will also be accepted.
If you see yourself or your business as a community partner, all donations will be gratefully accepted and acknowledged.
Sault Ste. Marie & Algoma District’s OPERATION ALL DRESSED UP! 2017 is scheduled for Sunday April 23, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn. Students must call ahead and book an appointment. Walk-ins are welcomed after 2:00 p.m.
