Girls that dream of going to the prom can, even if money is too tight to buy a prom dress. Altrusa International of Akron’s annual Princess Night Project is giving girls from area high schools can choose the prom dress of their dreams FREE. Plus, you can donate dresses, jewelry, purses, and shoes to help!
Princess Night Project in Akron for FREE Prom Dresses
Any girl is permitted to get a free prom dress, there is no recommendation or qualification is needed. Altrusa International makes it a joy to “shop” for a prom dress with over 1000 gowns to choose from. The prom dresses are sorted by size on the many racks. Altrusa asks only for the name of the girl’s school and how she heard about Princess Night Project in return.
Once registered, the girls will get a personal shopper to help them make selections from the dresses. If it’s not the perfect fit and the dress needs a few alterations, Altrusa even takes care of that! Seamstresses are available to make minor alterations.
Altrusa also offers a large selection of dressy shoes and other accessories such as purses, wraps and jewelry.
Masks will be required during the shops.
