'Project Prom' to extend its service


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

City officials are extending their “Project Prom” event following a large number of donations.

According to an Iowa City press release, the program received more than 150 dress donations, and more than 100 gowns still remain. Project Prom is a program to encourage people who still have gently used dresses to donate them to give for free to students attending prom this year.

The East Side Recycling Center’s Environmental Education Center, 2401 Scott Blvd., will be open today from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. for people interested in picking out a dress, as well as on Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon, the release said.

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