Forsyth County high school students are invited to complete four hours of community service in exchange for needed gowns and accessories for homecoming events.

Prom Angels, a nonprofit organization, recently collected more than 80 dresses and other formal accessories to be donated to girls who otherwise might not be able to afford the items.

After completing their four hours, the students can bring proof of the community service to the Prom Angels shopping event to receive dresses and accessories.

“We really didn’t want finances to come into play for anyone needing a dress, but we didn’t want to be just the free place to get a dress either,” said Natalie Roth, co-creator and volunteer with the program.

“[Completing community service] makes it possible for anyone who needs a dress to be able to get one with no questions of income.”

The shopping events are scheduled for noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sept. 26 at My Secret Closet, 4910 Browns Bridge Road.
