Cinderella Dresses for Prom

School NewsGreg Higgins

The Cinderella Project will be open every Saturday in April for any young lady in Lamar County shopping for a prom dress.  The best thing about The Cinderella Project is that dresses are free!  Store hours will be from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Immanuel Baptist Church located at 1771 Bonham Street.     

“The Cinderella Project was established several years ago because every girl deserves a happily ever after and is worthy of feeling like a princess” said project coordinator Sandra Patterson.  “Not only is the shop a good place to find a free dress, but it is an avenue for others to donate their formal and party wear for a great cause.”  

Donations may be taken to The Cinderella Project during shop hours or given to Patterson at North Lamar High School.  Tax receipts may be obtained by contacting Johnna McNeal at Malnory and McNeal on the corner of Clarksville Street and 17th Street S.E.
