In its third year, Memphis Prom Closet has expanded to young women at Northside, Booker T. Washington, and Douglass high schools.
Donations will be taken through Feb. 22 at Bridges, MIFA, and Memphis Urban League.
The dresses will be dry cleaned, and hung on display racks for the participants to choose from. They are free to all students.
The dresses will be sorted on Feb. 23rd from 8-10 a.m. at Douglass and from 1-4 p.m. on March 2 Memphis Prom Closet will hold a Prom Party at Douglass, 3200 Mt. Olive Road.
Along with dress shopping with a personal stylist, is a series of workshops that all students will participate in, including prom safety and ettiquette.
When the women of Brown Girl Dreams, formerly known as Girl Talk Memphis, and Smitten Events realized there was a need to make prom a reality for economically disadvantaged teenage girls, they teamed up to create Memphis Prom Closet, an initiative that provides prom dresses, free of charge, to girls who would have not otherwise had the opportunity to participate in their prom activities.
