Thomasville, GA- Prom season is right around the corner and a local organization is on a mission to make sure the big night is special for dozens of girls in our area.

The non-profit organization, PURSES Inc., in Thomasville is hosting the Dazzling Divas Prom Dress Drive.

Starting now through February 7th, they'll be collected gently used dresses, in all sizes, as well as accessories which will then be distributed to high school students in Thomas County and Thomasville.

Angela Johnson, the Founder of PURSES Inc. says folks can help by donating homecoming dresses, cocktail dresses, bridesmaid dresses as well as shoes and jewelry.

They can drop off the items Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the Johnson Institutional Services, Inc. which is located at 507 Campbell Street, Thomasville, GA 31792.

PURSES Inc. will also be hosting a special, pre-prom event on Saturday, March 1, 2014.

It will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express located at 452 Liberty Street, Thomasville, GA.

Johnson says there will be door prizes, hair tips, prom vendors as well as the gently used dresses and accessories.
