It’s one thing to ask someone out to the prom.  It’s another to get prepared when it comes to spending.

Not everyone can afford an outfit or dress, which is one of the most important part of attending such a lifetime event.

That is why there is an organization that is helping Akron-area students through a prom dress giveaway.

From WJW Fox 8 News Cleveland:

The event will be held at the Family of Faith United Methodist Church — 800 E Market St. in Akron.

According to a Facebook post, there will be hundreds of prom dresses in many sizes; there will also be shoes, purses and accessories.

You do not have to register, but it is first come, first serve at the church, and there will be assistants available to help with selections.

For more information on the event, click here.
