If you need a prom dress, a local organization can help and it won’t cost you any money.  

The Eastside Community Ministry is giving away prom dresses to area high school students in Muskingum County.

"Senior year in general is very expensive for families and parents with senior pictures and proms and graduations, so this is just one of the ways that we can help ease that financial burden," said Development Director Joey Osborne.

Osborne said on the day of the event, the lobby will be set-up to look more like a boutique. Dresses are given away on a first come first serve basis.

"It was really really exciting last year we just enjoyed seeing how beautiful they all looked and you could just tell they were thrilled too to look so beautiful," said Chairman of the Program Committee Sally Goins.

The giveaway will take place on April 4th from 3 to 5 p.m. Dress donations of any size and style are still being accepted.
