All 33 of the County’s Library branches are collecting gently used formal gowns for any high school student who needs one for the prom or other special occasion.
County employees who would like to join the collection drive can drop off special occasion dresses at two additional sites.
Library headquarters at the County Operations Center is taking dress donations between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 5560 Overland Ave., Room 110, now through April 15.
The bookmobile will also accept gowns during its regular Friday stop at the County Administration Center from noon to 4 p.m. this week.
The gowns will be donated free at Library giveaway events at the Vista branch on April 20 and the El Cajon branch on April 27. Teenagers can sign up to get a dress through the Princess Project.
