For young women and men in high school, prom is a special event. It is something that they look forward to all year, make plans and once the evening itself has passed, they will have the memories for years to come. But prom is expensive, and for some families, the cost can be a huge obstacle to attending. In 2013, Cinderella’s Closet at Hope was created to provide formal wear to students who might otherwise not be able to attend prom.

The program receives donated dresses, shoes and accessories in a wide array of sizes and then organizes several dates and times for students to find the dress of their dreams. This year’s events will be at Hope United Methodist Church, 3166 197th St. E., Faribault.  The giveaways will be Saturday, Jan. 28 and Feb. 18: 11AM to 3PM; Sunday, Jan. 29, Feb. 19, March 5, March 12, March 19, March 26, April 9, April 23: 1-4PM; Saturday, March 4, March 11, March 25, April 8: 10AM to 2PM; Friday, March 10, March 17: 6-9PM; Saturday, March 18, April 22: 12-4PM.

In addition to helping young girls’ dreams come true, and giving them a chance to create wonderful memories, this program is also environmentally friendly. For more information, or to donate your dress, shoes or accessories, call (952) 240-0269 or see their Facebook page.
