Cinderella Project

A University of North Texas service group is seeking donations of formal dresses and accessories for the Cinderella Project, which helps young women find a prom dress. 

The formal wear will be made available Feb. 21-22 in a special distribution event at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center. 

To make a donation, email Ellena Griffiths at
