Prom Dress Drive Seeks Dress Donations

Posted on March 7, 2016

The EmPoWER Family Success Center and Raritan Valley Community College are collecting new and gently used prom dresses and accessories for their 2016 Prom Dress Drive.  This year’s collection will culminate in a boutique-style giveaway at the Project Prom Princess event at Raritan Valley Community College on April 9, 2016.

The 2016 drive is designed to help offset the high cost of attending a high school prom for local teens and their families.  In addition to dresses, donations of costume jewelry, purses, shoes, and new cosmetics are welcome.

Donations can be dropped off at the following Somerset County locations by Wednesday April 6th.
