CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s that time of year when high school students start getting ready for prom, and there are options for some girls having a tough time paying for a new dress.

The Dream Come True Project at Moraine Valley Community College has been giving away prom dresses for about five years, according to organizer Adrienne Stewart, the college’s director of multi-cultural student affairs.

The girls get to keep the dresses, but Stewart said some girls bring them back after using them so that others can use from them.

“One year, we actually had two students wear the same dress to two different proms in two different high schools. They both liked the dress. They said ‘You know what, let’s hook up. I’ll use the dress on this day, and then I will pass the dress along to you so that you can use I ton this day,’” Stewart said.

Stewart said the giveaway started out for needy girls mainly in the southwest suburbs, from schools such as Argo, Oak Lawn, Andrew, Eisenhower, Richards and Shepard; but sstudents from further away have taken advantage, as well. No one who is needy will be turned away.

“It has gone great. Every year, we collect anywhere from 200 to 400 dresses; and we’re able to give out anywhere from 60 to 100 dresses,” Stewart said. “Because we get a mix of short and long, some of our students have actually walked out of here with two dresses; one for graduation.”
