What is wrong that we are giving prom dress handouts to these people? Are we going to start giving limos to welfare queens? Vacation homes to the homeless? When do the handouts stop?

When people like you wake up and see your neighbor as Jesus did, or does, whatever.

Exactly when did Jesus start wearing free prom dresses for the neighbors?

Heck , you and me both know that the Christians are the biggest hypocrites there are, all they see is themselves and what their church says to see, no more, no less. They have to stay within the cult's teachings, and only help those the cult authorizes them to help ! I think this is a awesome program, every girl should have the opportunity to enjoy her prom, it's like a dress rehearsal for another day in their lives when they will be even more beautiful than the day of their prom.

My only child is a nine year old boy. So this story dose not help me in any way. But no where dose it say you have to be on welfare or low income. Sounds like it is a great opportunity for every one. Why spend 200$ on a dress you are only going to wear one time.

What difference does it make if someone is poor and on welfare or if they are richer than Bill Gates ? Success isn't measured in dollars and cents. Success is measured in Love and Happiness, anyone who doesn't know that, lives the life of a fool !

You want a free prom dress for your nine year old boy?

I guess society should provide you one!

When I was a high school senior, my parents were barely able to pay the rent and put food on the table. When I got an invitation to the prom, at first I said no, but my Mom knew I really wanted to go so she told me we'd get the money for a dress somehow, and true to her word we did. I remember going to one of the bargain racks at a snooty dress store and choosing what I thought was the most beautiful gown I had ever seen. It was also the cheapest on the rack and still more than my parents could afford, but my Mom bought it anyway. We couldn't afford alterations and the store didn't offer alterations on sale items so my Mom and I hemmed and altered it to fit just right. I didn't have the money to buy a boutonniere (this was back in the day when boys gave the girls corsages to match their dresses and the girls gave their dates a rose or carnation boutonnieres for their lapels) so my dear boyfriend happily penned on a rose from his own yard. I expect it took most of they money his single Mom was able to scrape together to afford his tux and my corsage. We went to the prom, and I was able to forget that I didn't fit in with the well dressed snobs in our school, I was a princess right along with all the other girls. If you've never been the girl on the outside looking in at the other girls who can go out and pick any dress they want, then keep your snide remarks to yourself. I've been there and I remember how it felt and know how much a chance like this would have meant to my Mom and me.

Maybe your parents should have worked harder, princess. At least you didn't expect a prom dress handout like these welfare queens.

Angie,
I think your story is very touching, I grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth, my step father owned a construction company in NJ that helped build several Atlantic City Casinos, so money was never a issue, and I told a girl that also was from a well to do family. I did have a friend that was from a very poor household, the father had died from cancer and the mother worked two jobs to keep the bills paid. I can still remember how appreciative he was when my mother told him to tag along when I went to get my tux, she never said a word to either of us until we were in the store, then she told him to pick out his tux, that she wasn't going to let him miss out, and that she would cover the whole event for him. We ended up sharing the limo, which was a blast, the whole night and the next day when we all went to Six Flags we rode in style, My step dad had gotten us a limo for the prom, then got us another for the next days activities. I can still remember those fun times all these years later.
I Think that those commenting here against this are idiots, I suspect they are the same person, that childishly changes their name and posts more agreeing with themselves, I have a feeling who it is, as we have dealt with this babbling moron in the past, Yesterday the same person attacked the Food Bank's donation page, then came here changed names and posted again. I would just ignore their ignorant comments as engaging them actually makes them feel important in some sick retarded way !

It never ceases to amaze me the ignorance and predjudices that still abound in this area. It's a sad life these people live that begrudge an individual a little happiness. AND if the donations didn't cost them one red cent why the he** do they even have to comment. IGNORANCE pure and simple....

It seems that everytime I turn on the computer, read the paper, or talk to someone, a negative situation dominates the talk. Now I read an article about a local citizen who simply wants our area young ladies to have a memorable prom night, and idiots like some above have to submit negative posts. No doubt these idiots are first class losers - probably was not invited to the prom (because they are idiots) and now wish to rain on someone else's parade. Well, young ladies, if you have the need the take advantage of this service, go ahead and enjoy yourselves. The naysayers can stay at home and look at their pitiful faces in their mirrors.
