Harford County teen's prom dress drive gets overwhelming response

ABERDEEN, Md. — Hailey Allen wanted to do something special for her school's Special Needs Prom.

For her senior project at John Carroll High School Allen decided that she would ask for donated dresses to outfit prom goers.

The teen from Aberdeen thought she would collect maybe 15 to 20 dresses, but she had no idea that she would grab over 300!

Now, she wants to spread the wealth. Her Aberdeen home looks like a Kohl’s Department Store.

On Saturday, she will take all the racks that adorn her living room, dining room, and kitchen over to John Carroll High. From 1to 3 she wants people to come out to the school and pick out a dress of their choice.

All the dresses are free of charge!

Remember, the Special Needs Prom will be March 2.
