POMPANO BEACH, FL. (WSVN) – A South Florida-based nonprofit that helps high schoolers achieve their prom night dreams has started accepting dress-up requests for this year’s season.
Becca’s Closet, a volunteer-run organization, donates formal dresses to high school girls who otherwise might not be able to afford a dress for their military balls, homecomings, and high school-sponsored proms without their help.
On Saturday, 7News cameras captured high school girl Srinthia as she tried on a bright pink dress at Becca’s Closet in Pompano Beach.
“I like the color,” she said.
Srinthia said she was ready to dress up and look good with a prom in less than two months.
“I love them all,” she said.
She’s not the only one turning to Becca’s Closet for help.
Aryel Trollinger says it took a while to find the perfect prom dress, but she thinks she’s found a winner.
“I’ve tried about 10, but I think this might be the one,” she said.
Becca’s Closet receives clothing donations from generous retailers, manufacturers and individuals.
Thanks to volunteers and donations from the community, these teens can walk into their dances feeling like royalty.
“They are transforming. Half of these girls have never worn a dress in their life,” said volunteer Diane Behar.
“Yeah, I’m happy, because I’m able to get a dress for prom and look pretty,” Srinthia said.
Finding the perfect dress also made Srinthia’s mother, Fodlyne, happy.
“I’m glad I was able to bring him for this experience,” she said.
