Do you have gently used prom dresses or are you able to donate new dresses? If so, the South Chula
Vista Library could use your help with their Princess Project Dress Drive and Give-Away!
Students in grades 9 through 12 from financially challenged families are provided free prom dresses
and accessories so that they can attend their proms in a beautiful dress. The non-profit Princess
Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing the free prom dresses.
Donors are encouraged to drop off dresses or accessories at the South Chula Vista Library, 389
Orange Avenue, by April 20. Gowns must be in excellent condition, and all sizes, fabrics and colors are
accepted! The library is open Monday – Thursday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday – Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.
If you are a student looking for a free evening gown for your high school prom, you can register for an
appointment. A valid high-school ID is required to receive one free dress and accessory each.
The gown give-away event at the South Chula Vista Library will be held on Saturday, April 22,
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those with appointments can arrive between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Walk-ins may select a
gown between 2 and 4 p.m. Since it began in 2002, more than 20,000 teens have received prom dresses free of
charge from the Princess Project. This annual effort is made possible through invaluable volunteer, donor and
