A local non-profit is making sure everyone feels like royalty on prom night

We’re in the midst of one of the most exciting times of year for many high schoolers, prom season. However, for some, this causes anxiety about being able to afford all that goes along with it.

Carrie’s Kids, a local non-profit, is trying to change that. 

They are providing prom dresses, shoes and even jewelry to local high school girls. 

The program is volunteer based, and so far this year they’ve donated nearly 80 dresses to girls in the region.

Carrie Grosz, the founder of Carrie’s Kids, says there are over 5,000 students living on the brink of extreme poverty right here in our communities.

She says giving them the opportunity to go to prom is one way to remind them that they matter.

“I think every girl has the right to look good and feel good and go to prom. And you don’t get to wear these fancy ballgowns very often, so prom is your opportunity to get out there and shine like the beautiful princess that you are,” says Grosz. 

“Helping girls, and seeing them get happy and have an opportunity that they wouldn’t typically have is really rewarding,” says volunteer, Brandee Huwe

They will continue to donate dresses, shoes and jewelry until the very end of prom season.
