Still need your prom outfit? No you don’t, so how about donating it to Montgomery County’s giveaway

For the second year in a row, Montgomery County, Maryland’s, Department of Recreation will hold the “Praisner’s Prom Dress” giveaway event.

Is there a dress or suit in your closet that you haven’t worn in years? Maybe it doesn’t fit anymore or maybe you want to pare down your wardrobe.
