Are you wondering how to find free or cheap prom dresses in Greenville, SC? Do you know someone planning to attend prom this spring? Prom season is coming up but for some girls, while the prospect of going to the prom would be great, affording a dress is a challenge. The good news is that there is a fairy godmother-like organization in our area that is willing and ready to help out these would-be princesses for their big night.
The Cinderella Project
Aptly named, the Cinderella Project accepts donations of not only prom dresses but also accessories for teens and then opens up a small boutique during several dates in the early spring so young ladies can choose their perfect gown.
The Upstate area boutiques and dates are below. Students must bring a student ID and there is a limit of one dress per student.
