The Catholic Sentinel reports on a non-profit called Abby’s Closet which helps teen girls find prom dresses. It was started by Sally Egland who works at the Resurrection Parish in Tualatin. The ministry has helped 2,4000 high school students find formal dresses for special occasions. This can be very helpful as prom dresses can cost between $60-$600.
You can donate dresses or financial contributions and inquire more at their website at abbyscloset.com
