There are teens who do not get to go to their Prom because the costs are prohibitive. One of the ways of helping these kids out is “A Promise for Prom“, a service which loans out dresses, gowns, suits and tuxedos to anyone who needs them.
Started this year by Lou-Anne Hood in Rigaud, she is accepting any prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, dark suits or tuxedos, shoes and purses, to share with others. She already has about 30 from sizes 0-16 and would love to receive more.
A prospective teen who wants to borrow one, has to come with a parent and sign a contract so that the dress or suit will be returned – clean.
