Help for teens who can't afford prom dresses

The Assisteens, the teen auxiliary of the Assistance League of Downey, is hosting a "Glamour Gowns" program to help local girls who cannot afford an outfit for prom. Girls can receive an entire outfit that includes a dress, jewelry, hand bag and shoes.

The outfits will be distributed March 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Assistance League chapter house at 7749 Florence Ave.

The Assisteens are also accepting donations of new or gently-used dresses, shoes and accessories. Donations can be delivered to the Second Tyme Around Shop at 11026 Downey Ave.

For more information about the program, call Stacy Brabant at (310) 991-3757.
