Project Prom gown giveaway days canceled
March 17, 2020
This year’s Project Prom Gown Giveaway Days have been canceled. Project Prom is a partnership between the Allegheny County Department of Human Services (DHS) and the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) to provide free prom attire to students.
DHS and NCJW made the decision in response to a recommendation by the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) to minimize large gatherings, to help stop the potential spread of the virus.
Gown Giveaway Days were supposed to take place March 21 – 28. Organizers are disappointed but believe the decision is in the best interest of public health.
Project Prom will resume next year.
