This is the second year of the drive called Project Prom. Girls got to pick out and try on dresses. Organizers started this drive to make sure everyone has a chance to go to the big night.

"Last year, there were three kids in my family going to prom so it was really expensive. Girls bought dresses and borrowed dresses from their friends all the time, so we thought why not just collect a whole bunch of used dresses in one place and there's a wider selection for people to look at."

The money raised goes toward buying gym clothes and school supplies for students who can't afford them.
