Claressa Ham, founder of Archies Promise, told WGNS they are in need of gently used and new prom dresses and tuxedo's. The non-profit organization gives the formal clothing to local high school students who are on the free or reduced lunch plan so that they will look beautiful on prom night.
WGNS' Scott Walker spoke to Ham about Prom Night in Rutherford County.
Archie's Promise is named after Claressa Ham's grandfather who passed away in 2007. Before he died, Ham promised him she would continue to help others.
The Archies Promise event will allow for Rutherford County girls to pick out a prom dress on March 8th at Siegel High School. The event is open to the public and dresses will also be sold if you do not fit in the category for receiving a dress at no charge.
