Ocean County Library Branches Collecting Prom Dresses

Feb 14, 2018

All branches of the Ocean County Library are collecting gently used prom dresses beginning March 1 for its seventh annual Prom Dress Giveaways. Donations can include both long and short styles for modern teens and should only be formal prom dresses. The library cannot accept bridesmaid dresses or cocktail dresses. People can donate dresses by delivering them to any one of the 21 locations in the county.

The annual event provides dresses to middle school and high school students at no charge so they can attend their school’s dances.

“This is our 10th year of the giveaway, and the demand gets greater each year,” said Bob Vosseler of the library system’s public relations department.

A schedule for pickup of prom dresses will be announced at a later date. For more information, log onto theoceancountylibrary.org or telephone any branch.  —E.E.
