Montwood High Student Council seeks Donations of Gently Used Dresses for Operation Prom

For more than three years, Montwood High School Student Council has transformed the school cafeteria into a dress shop where any teen girl can choose a free prom dress and accessories.

This year’s Operation Prom store will open April 2, which gives teen girls who cannot afford a new prom dress the opportunity to pick a dress for free.
