I know of a student in my community who could benefit from Operation Glass Slipper. How can I refer her to you?
If you are teacher, counselor, or other staff member at a school in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, odds are we have sent information packets and referral forms to your school in mid- February. If this material has not been routed to you, check with your school office to see if they have it. If your school office tells you they don’t have it, email us at info[at]operationglassslipper.org with your name, position, and phone number and we will email it to you.
If you are teacher, counselor, or other staff member at a school outside of the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, or if you are an adult outside of a school setting, such as a community leader or clergy member, email us at info[at]operationglassslipper.org with your name, position, and phone number and we will email an information packet with a referral form to you.
I want to help my child get a dress, who should I contact?
If you are a relative of the student – mother, grandmother, aunt – or the student’s guardian, please have your student check with her guidance counselor or a teacher at school and obtain a signed referral form. The information packet with a referral form is mailed to high school offices in mid-February. We always request that the form be distributed to all school staff members, including counselors, teachers, social workers, and nurses, so someone at your student’s school should have the form. (If your student asks around her school and no one seems to have the form, let us know by emailing info[at]operationglassslipper.org and giving us the name of her school or the name, email address, and phone number of a teacher, counselor, or other official at her school and we will send that person a referral form.)
PLEASE NOTE that referral forms are NOT available for download on our website. We send referral forms to school offices as part of our February mailing, or to school staff or non-family adults in the community upon request.
