FCCLA: Prom dress and suit giveaway

Local News

Prom can be expensive and unaffordable for some families. 

One Rankin County group is looking to take away the financial stress by giving away dresses. 

The 2nd annual Once Upon a Prom Dress and Suit giveaway will be Saturday at 10:00 am until 2:30 pm. The event will be held at the Dixie District Outfitters and Salon; 901 Lakeland Place, Suite 9, Flowood, Mississippi. 

Xorica Patrick stopped to talk about the giveaway. 

“What I noticed is that even to rent a dress the price could be $300 to $400.”

Patrick says they have dresses for all shapes and sizes. 

They are still taking a donation from the public. People can donate dresses and suits, clean, gently used or new. 

“Our main mission on earth is to help someone else. Not to give a handout but to give a hand up. And if you have dresses come by and drop them off.”
