Maria Ocegueda is going through a rack of dresses trying to find the perfect prom dress.  Maria and other girls from Polytechnic High School in Fort Worth, Texas, are looking for their dresses at a church fellowship hall. That’s where Cindy Olivera is offering free prom dresses to juniors and seniors from low income families. She calls her grassroots program “Prom Queen FAD.” (FAD stands for For A Day.)

    Great job, Cindy!!! I am so proud of you for this initiative! I donated all my dresses a few years ago for our LIP students because I know how important it is to enjoy the prom night. The prom is a night that will never come back and it symbolizes the culmination of an important part of a person’s life and education. No girl should have to choose not to go to her prom because she lacks a dress. Gracias, Rebecca, for writing about this great initiative!
