Check out this list of locations throughout the state of Minnesota where teens who need them can get prom dresses for free!
I’m not sure how long ago your high school prom was, but if you went and wore a dress to it, you know that prom dresses can be expensive, am I right?!
We’ve rounded up several organizations around Minnesota that are giving away FREE prom dresses to teens in need of a dress.
Some events will also let teens pick out shoes and/or coordinating accessories, and almost all of them are staffed by volunteers that will help teens “shop” for their perfect dress.
If you have a gently used or new prom or formal dress to donate, many of these organizations are also still accepting donations for the giveaway events – just check their websites or Facebook pages for more information on how to do so.
