If you have a new or gently used prom/party dress or a tuxedo/suit you'd like to get rid of, The Bridge of Lubbock will take them. This organization is a privately-funded Christian non-profit in East Lubbock seeking to restore hope in the community.

The gathering of the fancy clothes is all part of helping teenagers who otherwise can't afford to go to prom. Also needed are shoes, jewelry and other accessories.

Last year 130 dresses were distributed to kids wanting to go to prom, and this year they are looking to match that, plus find young men's clothing as well.

Local businesses are getting involved in the drive, businesses like Comet Cleaners, Sew Lovely, Lubbock Hair Academy, The Bridal Shoppe and Dustee's. Donations can be dropped off at The Bridge of Lubbock, 1301 E. Redbud or Sew Lovely Alterations at 8004 Indiana Ave. For information on hours, etc., call 441-6527 or 790-7518 or go to their site.
