Time to get rid of your old prom dresses and support a good cause


Many girls are guilty of buying a gorgeous prom dress, wearing it once, and then leaving it in the closet never to be worn again.

Now is your chance to not only free up some space in your closet, but to do a good deed as well.
With prom season right around the corner, the search for that perfect dress will soon begin for many high school girls. 

Tau Kappa, Shippensburg University’s women’s athletic sorority will be hosting its second annual Project Prom Dress. 

The dress drive helps girls who need a prom dress by offering prom wear for much less than dress boutique prices. 

Tau Kappa is in need of gently used dresses, shoes and accessories.  Any formal gown, including homecoming and bridesmaids dresses are able to be donated.

A total of 245 dresses were donated to last year’s event and organizers are hoping to receive even more this year. Project Prom Dress also raised $947 last year, which was donated to charity.
“It was nice knowing that what we were doing impacted the girls in the community in a positive manner and that they will be able to attend prom in beautiful dresses that they might not have been able to purchase brand new,” Laura Henzy said.

Henzy is the organizer of last year’s Project Prom Dress.

Tell your friends and family members about the event and help Tau Kappa to reach their goal.
Organizers are collecting dresses now through March. Donations can be made by emailing projectpromdress2012@hotmail.com. The event is scheduled for March 25th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
