Saying they hope other girls will get the same enjoyment from their special prom dress, teens are donating them to the 18th annual Prom Boutique, a New York charity program that once a year outfits girls in need.

Each teen gets a free dress and matching accessories. More than 1,300 girls benefited last year.

You can donate your formal wear before April 22 at collections sites around Long Island. (See the list here)
