Archie's Promise will hold its fifth annual prom dress drive for students in need on Saturday at a Rutherford County high school.
Organizers of the event, which will be held at Siegel High School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will provide prom dresses at little or no cost to families who can not afford to purchase one for the upcoming prom season.
High school girls who receive free or reduced lunch, as well as anyone with a referral from a counselor or social worker qualifies for a free dress. Everyone else can purchase a dress for $25.
Around 600 dresses will be available for choosing.
Founder Claressa Ham began Archie's Promise in memory of her late grandfather, Archie.
“I always promised him that I would keep his memory alive and keep doing great work within the community and making sure people are helped,” Ham previously told Nashville's News 2.
