JCPenney collecting prom dresses for needy girls

Those who donate get 20 percent discount on a new prom dress

March 18, 2011|By Andrea K. Walker

Prom season is around the corner, but not every teenage girl can afford a dress. JCpenney doesn't want that to stop girls from taking part in what can be a high schoolers most memorable night. The retailer is hosting a donation drive to collect gently used prom dresses for needy girls. The drive started last weekend and runs through April 2. The dresses will be collected at JCPenney stores and then donated to local after school charities, which will make them available to underprivileged girls in the community. Donate an old dress and JCpenney will give a 20 percent off coupon to spend on a new dress.
