The Glass Slipper Shop gives the local community the opportunity to purchase new and gently used prom dresses and other formal dresses at a lower cost. Approximately 300 dresses of various styles, sizes and colors have been donated by dress shops such as Teresa's Bridal in Algona, A Heavenly Celebration and Elegance by Sarah Ruhs in Okoboji and Stacey's Bridal in Des Moines, as well as BVU students and community members. The dresses can viewed on Student MOVE's Glass Slipper Shop Facebook page.
