    NBC 5 News

    Prom season is here and a Collin County church is once again helping high school students get ready for their big night.

    For the past 10 years, the Prom Closet in Plano has been giving away donated prom dresses, shoes, jewelry, wraps, purses and accessories. This year, St. Andrew United Methodist Church has 5,500 dresses up for grabs, for free.

    The only requirement is that girls must be present to receive their dresses and accessories.

    Last year, the Prom Closet provided dresses to more than 900 girls, 270 pairs of shoes and 1,700 pieces of jewelry.
