Pretty and Primped Project aims to eliminate cost of dress

Posted: Updated:
GOLDSBORO, N.C. - Prom season is winding down, yet many families are still paying off what it cost to send their kids to the big dance.
     
One North Carolina woman has been working to help eliminate the cost of a dress.

Brooke Carrington started the "Pretty and Primped Project". She grew up in Williamston, yet now lives in Greensboro.
     
For the past three years, she's been collecting prom dresses and giving them to girls in need all over the state.

"It was very emotional seeing these girls, not just the girls but seeing their parents,” said Brooke Carrington, Pretty and Primped Project founder. “It means so much to them, because if it wasn't for this project, a lot of these girls wouldn't be going to prom."

She's already collecting dresses for next year. If you'd like to donate an old dress, click here for more information.
