One Final Day for Project Prom Giveaway

PITTSBURGH – Allegheny County Department of Human Services today announced that the Project Prom Shop will offer eligible high school girls one last chance to choose a free gown and accessories. Located at the Century III Mall, the Project Prom Shop will be open Tuesday, April 23 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. This one-day extension, from the original close date of March16, is due to popular demand.

To be eligible, high school girls must live in Allegheny County and meet one of the following eligibility requirements:

  • Receive services or have a family member receiving services through DHS,
  • Receive or be eligible to receive a free or reduced-price school lunch, or
  • Have a parent or caretaker receiving unemployment benefits.

The shop will have available dresses -- new and gently worn, in the latest trends, in a wide range of sizes. All of the gowns have been carefully screened to ensure each is clean and undamaged. Accessories, including shoes, purses, wraps and jewelry will also be available to complete the ensemble.
