The next prom dress giveaways will take place April 21, April 28 and May 5 from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Riedinger School building, 77 W. Thornton St. in Akron. Enter the building through Door #1 and follow the signs.

Through A Rose Project, hundreds of girls in foster care or otherwise in need receive dresses, shoes and accessories so they can attend their high school homecoming or prom in style. Volunteers help the girls choose dresses and accessories to make each girl's experience special.

New and gently worn prom and homecoming dresses can be donated at a collection box in the lobby of the Juvenile Court at 650 Dan St. You can also arrange for a pick-up. The project is especially in need of dresses sizes 18 and above. If you leave your contact information, you will be mailed a tax receipt.

A Rose Project is presented in conjunction with the CASA Guardian ad Litem Program of Summit County and Holy Family Girl Scout troop 1063. Coit Cleaners generously donated cleaning for all of the dresses.
