Donate prom dresses for CFISD teens

Published on: February 16, 2007

The Lone Star College–CyFair Branch Library and the Cy-Fair Independent School District are working together again on a Prom Dress Drive to benefit teens in need in the seven high schools in the district.

Proms can be expensive, but if teens need a dress, tux or other assistance, they should contact the Youth Service Specialist or Counselor at their respective CFISD high school.

Prom dress donations are being accepted through March 31 at the Lone Star College–CyFair Branch Library Circulation Desk. Dresses must be in perfect condition: clean, undamaged and stylish. Only sizes 16 – 22 are currently needed.

Dresses will be available for teens in need to try on and take home at no charge from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Saturdays March 24, March 31, April 14, April 21 and April 28 in the library, room 131 as well as by appointment.

For information on the Prom Dress Drive, contact organizers Nancy Flanakin at meaford8510@yahoo.com or teen librarian Elise Sheppard at elise.j.sheppard@lonestar.edu.
