The Cinderella Project of Maine is proud to announce that it will be holding prom dress giveaways in both Belfast and Gardiner again this year.

The Gardiner giveaway will be Saturday, March 21 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gardiner Area High School in Gardiner. The Belfast giveaway will be on Saturday, April 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Renys Plaza, where there will also be a representative from Belfast City Drawers, who will offer free bra fittings to students and any adult that brings a student. They will also have a selection of gently used bras available for students to pick up that are attending the Cinderella Project of Maine prom dress giveaway in Belfast.

The Cinderella Project of Maine’s prom gowns are free to all Maine high school students in need of a dress for prom with one stipulation – that they promise to pay the favor forward in some way by doing something nice for someone else in their community.

If you or someone would like to donate a dress to the Cinderella Project of Maine, it’s not too late. Dresses are accepted all the way up until the day of the last giveaway. Dress donations are accepted at any Day’s Jewelers store in the State of Maine. For additional dress drop off locations, visit
