Prom season is right around the corner. There is a project in Columbia that helps girls who cannot afford a new prom dress find the perfect outfit. It's called the Cinderella Project.
The project began in 2000 and is housed at the USC School of Law. Project organizer Elizabeth Davis says the goal is to help young ladies make their proms memorable.
"My prom experiences are some of my best high school memories, if I am able to provide that or help provide that for a young lady in the midlands who might not otherwise have that opportunity it's important and special to me," Davis says.
Donations of dresses are taken at different locations around the Columbia area. M-Boutique is a Columbia business that participates in the event and has been doing so for the past seven years.
"It doesn't matter who you. Everyone wants to go to prom and it's really important that the girls get a chance to get a dress," says Molly Stevens of M-Boutique.
High school girls with a valid school identification card are encouraged to come to USC's school of law from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon Saturday to find that perfect prom dress.
