The Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. gave away 50 free prom dresses to high school students from across the county April 14 as part of its fourth annual Prom Dress Giveaway.
The dresses were donated from members and residents for students that are low-to-middle income and needed a dress for prom, said Arndreya Price, chair of the Prom Dress Giveaway. The event was held at Northwestern High School in Hyatsville.
Students also received jewelry, makeup and handbags along with the dress, she said.
“It went really well,” Price said. “It was very organized, and the girls seemed to be very satisfied with the dresses that we got.”
