Some Orange County nonprofits need donations of prom dresses and accessories for an annual day of empowerment for at-risk girls.
Women Helping Women/Men2Work is partnering with Girls Inc. of Orange County and Orangewood Children's Foundation for their sixth "Belle of the Ball."
On March 23, about 350 at-risk teenage girls will hear speakers, attend body image and empowerment workshops, and receive free prom dresses and accessories at Orange Coast College.
Women Helping Women is asking for new or gently used formal dresses, formal shoes, purses and jewelry to support the event. There's a special need for evening purses, jewelry and plus-size dresses, according to a press release.
