Prom season is almost here, and one area church intends to help lots of girls find the perfect dress – at no cost.
Grace Fellowship Church in Fort Smith will host a free Prom Closet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at the church, 10303 Highway 45 in Fort Smith.
Zenda Dodson, event coordinator, said the church was gifted more than 400 dresses from a store that was closing, and they hope to help many girls with a special prom dress.
“Every girl deserves to have the opportunity to have the dress of her dreams,” Dodson said, adding that there are dresses of all styles and sizes. “We want to try and help as many girls as we can to have a good prom experience.”
She said most prom closets operate like a free rental, where the dresses are returned each year. Dodson said these dresses will be gifted to the girls, with the promise that they will not sell the dress for money, but that they will pay it forward, and pass the dress along to someone else who will use it.
“We want to help anybody we can possibly help,” Dodson added.
