Prom Dresses

Two Shreveport women who met in a public relations class at LSU have launched a branch of the Cinderella Project in Shreveport. The goal is to collect donated prom dresses this month for underprivileged high school girls who might otherwise not be able to afford a glitzy, high-dollar dress. Co-director Ashley Busada said in its first year in Shreveport, the nonprofit organization will give away dresses to about 130 juniors and seniors at Fair Park High School.
