Tifton- Tift County High School social worker Janelle Taylor is collecting used formal dresses and accessories for an annual prom dress drive.

Donated dresses will be given to students who can't afford to buy their own formal wear.

"It's gratifying. you know that you're helping a girl to achieve some memories that will help her to remember the fun times of high school. Every girl deserves the opportunity to go to her high school prom," says Taylor.

The Tift County high school prom is on April 16th, so you can still make donations. The dresses must be dry cleaned and can be any style, color, and size.
