The Allegheny County Department of Human Services and partner National Council of Jewish Women will kick off the annual Project Prom from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. March 9 at the council’s Thriftique shop, 125 51st St. in Lawrenceville.
The giveaway of prom attire for eligible high school students will continue from 3-6:30 p.m. March 11 and 14 and from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. March 16.
Eligibility requirements include Allegheny County residence and qualification for a free or reduced school lunch. Students with a household member on active military duty or who is a veteran also qualify.
Teens will be able to select from an assortment of free, current-style dresses of all sizes and colors, both new and gently used, planners say.
Shoes and accessories also will be available.
Volunteers will assist those shopping, and pre-registration is not required.
