Springtime means prom time at local high schools but not all female students have the resources to purchase the apparel necessary to be suitably attired for this occasion.
Prom dresses, some brand new and others gently worn, only once, plus shoes and purses in similar condition are being offered free of charge at St. John United Church of Christ in Fairview Heights from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 11.
A group within the church called the Evening Circle is involved in this project for the very first time in an effort to provide for the young ladies in the area who may be in need of a prom dress, purse and shoes. Over 200 dresses in various sizes are included and need not be returned.
The church is located at 10207 Lincoln Trail in Fairview Heights.
