City officials are requesting prom wear for their “Project Prom” initiative.

According to an Iowa City news release, the project asks for unused prom-wear including dresses, tuxedos, shoes, handbags, and donate them to the East Side Recycling Center’s Education Center, 2401 Scott Blvd. from 1-4 p.m. Saturday.

On March 9, students who plan to attend prom are invited to shop for clothing and accessories from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the East Side Education Center. Items will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and some changing areas will be available on the day of the give-away.

Project Prom is a program coordinated by the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center and community member Mary Palmberg. This program is modeled after similar events held across Iowa; earlier this year, an event in Muscatine resulted in the donation and give-away of almost 100 prom dresses.
