Some young ladies in foster care will be decked out for this year's prom. It's all thanks to the Student Association of Social workers at the University of Southern Mississippi.
For the past five months, the group has been collecting prom dresses for young women in foster care.
This weekend, the group made its first stop in Gulfport.
The Student Association of Social Workers will be traveling throughout the state this week, letting young women in foster care choose the dress of their prom dream.
The group would also like to help the girls with their hair and nails and make up, as well.
If you're a business who would like to help, please call 1-601-310-3881.
