Bling Your Prom is back this 2024 Prom season!
On March 15 from 2 to to 5:30 p.m.and March 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 o.m. the Athens-Clarke County Library’s Teen Services Department invites local teens to pick out, try on, and take home a FREE complete prom ensemble!
Bling Your Prom empowers local teens to save money on an extravagant outfit they may only wear once, and also allows them to practice sustainable shopping, giving new life to formalwear that many donors may have just sitting in storage.
“This is a way to let beautiful garments we've loved continue to serve their purpose and become part of another young person's treasured memory,” said Teen Services Coordinator Elizabeth Hood.
The library is excited to provide this resource to local teens once more for the 2024 prom season, and urges individuals and businesses alike to consider contributing to Bling Your Prom 2024 in order to make a marked difference in the lives of our local youth.
Items that they are especially seeking out include men’s and women’s formalwear, jewelry and accessories, men’s and women’s formal shoes, and new (unused) cosmetics and hair products..
The acceptance of donations has been extended through March 14, 2024.
