Project Provides Free Prom Dresses for Girls, Donate Yours Now

DAYTON -- Making girls' dreams come true one dress at a time, a local organization is about to make hundreds of girls' lives a whole lot easier with your help.

Decisions, decisions for 15-year-old Michael Mathews. We caught up with her as she tried on a few contenders for prom.

"Going to pick out the dresses, that's the most fun part about anything is getting new clothes, right?" asked the 15 year old excitedly. She is participating in this year's Fairy Godmother Project.

"We invite any high school girl in the Dayton area who is looking to go to prom this year can come get a dress for us for free. We've had a great number of ladies come in and donate their dresses, prom dresses, formal dresses, accessories," said Shelby Quinlivan, Director of Communications for Clothes That Work.

This project is part of Clothes that Work, which is an organization that helps job seekers look the part, and hopefully land a job. Its new boutique opens up next month.

"Our mission at Clothes that Work is to provide confidence building, image consulting, and this is just another way to help boost confidence in the young ladies life," explained Quinlivan.

For six years, Clothes that Work has made young girls' dreams come true through this Fairy Godmother Project. An entire large hallway will transform into a prom dress boutique on March 15.

"We actually have some still with tags on them, and it's a variety of sizes, and styles, short and long, halters, strapless, so anything you can really imagine and it's just a great option for any girls who really can't afford a prom dress or a pair of shoes, and accessories," Quinlivan said.

"It's kind of like getting your first car. It's just really, really exciting, especially thinking about the experience you'll have in the dress," Michael said.

She volunteered last year, but this year it is time for her to pick. Decisions, decisions.

"Once you finally find what you're looking for, it's just like Wow, you light up and glow."

Clothes That Work is accepting dress and accessory donations for the Fairy Godmother Project.
