Picking out a prom dress can be a difficult decision. What’s even more difficult is not being able to afford a prom dress. For many girls, that special day can be a nightmare when there is nothing to wear. Fortunately Urban Valet is helping to resolve the situation and is asking the community to support its annual Prom Drive this week.
Just think of all of those special dresses that only get worn once. Think of the memories and the money. It’s exciting for some and worrisome for others. There’s no reason that hand-me-downs shouldn’t suffice when in dire straights, especially when there should be plenty of dresses to choose from for everyone. I bet that there are hundreds of unwanted prom dresses sitting in closets all over Buffalo, with fading memories of their importance, just waiting for a renewed life.
According to the Elmwood Village Association, Urban Valet is on the hunt for “Gently used formal dresses that will be collected and cleaned through March 29th. Dresses will be available for free to area school girls during a shopping event in April (TBA).”
