AACC Begins Collection for ‘Once Upon a Prom’ Dresses

Oct. 12, 2012

Anne Arundel Community College Student Life Office and Campus Activities Board once again are collecting prom-style dresses and accessories for the spring prom season to help local girls who might not otherwise be able to afford to dress up.

The inaugural "Once Upon a Prom" event last year was a great success with about 80 local teens choosing among 320 donated dresses and gowns, plus shoes and accessories. Needed are gently used dresses and gowns, shoes and accessories. Donations can be dropped off in the Student Union Room 202 on AACC's Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway.

The donations will be given out during an event to be scheduled in the spring. Counselors at local high schools will receive invitations for students identified in need to look for a prom dress, shoes and accessories.
