Free Prom Dresses
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Going to the prom can be very expensive, but now girls in the North Valley can get their dresses for free.
The student body president of Merced High School organized this temporary shop to provide dresses to girls at Merced, Atwater, and Golden Valley high schools who can't afford to buy new ones.
Students, teachers, and other residents donated the gowns and the owner of the promenade shopping center donated the store space.
Other businesses also chipped in everything from accessories to hair appointments to make sure the girls feel special.
Saturday is the last day the dresses will be available. The shop opens at 11 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m.
Students just need to bring their ID's.
