The YWCA of Central Alabama and the Junior League of Birmingham will team up for a fifth year to provide dresses for those young women that would otherwise not be able to get one for their proms or other special events at school. According to Venus Divas Blog, each spring young women are invited to the YWCA’s My Sister’s Closet to look through the prom dress “boutique” and pick out what they need to take part in their big event. More than 110 young ladies from 19 area schools received dresses through the program last year. They are requesting plus size dresses so that they will be able to provide to more this year.
Contact information from the blog post:

Birmingham, Alabama is known as one of the most giving communities in the country, and it appears that we always step up to the plate for this event. We’ll see if we can step up what we give one more level this year.
