Spring means prom season for high school girls, so of course, most girls would like a really beautiful dress to wear for the special occasion. However, a prom dress may cost as much as $300 or more.

For girls who maybe can’t afford to spend a lot of money on that special, pretty dress, she may have to look no further than Underground Ministries at Living Faith Church of God in Guyton.

“We have dress sizes from triple zero up to 20,” said Wanda Parnell, who helped organize a give-away event on Feb. 25. “We had 200 dresses and did we give away 200 dresses? No, but the girls who got dresses, were girls that needed us to not only to give them a dress, but to love on them.”

In addition to a prom dress, girls were able to select shoes, jewelry, and receive hair and make-up tips.

Young ladies who missed the giveaway event and who still need a prom dress can call Living Faith Church of God at 912-728-8811 and leave a message for Parnell. She will meet them at the church and help them select a dress and accessories.

Dress recipients can keep the dress or return it to the church. “If they don’t want to keep it, they can certainly pay it forward,” Parnell said. Additionally, anyone who has a formal dress, shoes or accessories to donate to the ministry may do so as well.

Living Faith Church of God is located at 3789 Noel C. Conaway Rd. (Hwy. 30), Guyton.
