Cinderella Project gives away dresses

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - On Saturday, the Cinderella Project gave away prom dresses to North Louisiana high school juniors and seniors.

Chapter president Ashley Yeldell said the group collected about 2,000 dresses this year thanks to many sponsors and donors, with a big help from Louisiana State Police. 

She said the girls who participate in the Cinderella Project are also eligible for the group's leadership and scholarship program.

"It's a great day and people are excited, but it's also about instilling self-confidence, self-esteem and the importance of serving others," Yeldell said.

The girls were also able to pick out shoes and accessories to go along with their perfect dress.
