OPERATION PROM Celebrates 9 Years

Happy 9th anniversary to an amazing group that has roots in Westchester – OPERATION PROM! From their website:

“Self proclaimed Promologist, Noel D’Allacco, founded Operation PROM, a nationally recognized 501 c 3 not for profit organization in 2005, when she worked as an event planner.  She began collecting bridesmaid dresses from clients and donated them to students from her high school, Saunders HS, in Yonkers, New York.

Operation PROM was originally established to help low-income students attend their Proms by providing free Prom dresses and tuxedo rentals. It has since expanded to also help students with scholarships and school supplies. The organization primarily assists students who are sick, homeless or live in shelters and do not have family to assist them. To date, Operation PROM has helped thousands of students attend their prom at little or no cost. To request a free prom dress, students must be recommended by their guidance counselor and meet the requirements, such as a severe financial need, and the student should be passing all of their classes.

Noel and her team oversee all national chapters of Operation PROM.  Noel runs the organization while also working as a Business Professor at the College of Westchester in White Plains, New York.”

Noel and everyone at OPERATION PROM work tirelessly to help outfit area teens in need of formal wear, as well as school supplies and scholarships.  If you’d like to lend a hand, please visit them at www.helpprom.org or see below for sponsorship opportunities.
