BELFAST – The Cinderella Project of Maine held the first free prom dress giveaway in Belfast this weekend.
The next one will happen in Gardiner at Gardiner Area High School on Saturday, April 9 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
In its 11th year, the project of Waldo Community Actions Partners, is a private non-profit in Belfast. Donations are tax deductible.
Gowns were given to Maine high school students in need of a dress. Event organizers then asked those who took home dress to pay it forward in their community.
Over 1,000 dresses were donated from the community with hundreds of girls taking home a dress that made them feel like a princess.
