Want a Dress

Do you want to go to prom in the dress of your dreams but simply cannot find an affordable dress? High school students face challenges every day, and going through this important rite of passage should not be an additional stress. The Operation Prom Dress Project truly believes that every young woman deserves to feel beautiful on the day of her prom, and we are here to make your dreams come true. We are here to make you the “belle of the prom” – for free!
