Senior Marian HS Student asking for mid-winter formal dress donations for other students

NOW: Senior Marian HS Student asking for mid-winter formal dress donations for other students
NEXT:

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- It’s mid-winter formal season at Marian High School, and while some have no problem buying a dress, there are students who aren’t as fortunate.

One senior wants to make sure everyone has the chance to pick out a dress for the dance, and all for free.

Payton Molnar-Matz started collecting dresses with her health teacher, Allison Bailey. The idea is that any student can come and take a dress if they aren’t able to buy one.

Or, maybe you’re a senior who doesn’t want to buy another dress this year - you can trade an old dress in for one of the donated ones.

Some of the donated dresses still have the tags, and all dresses will also be dry-cleaned before they’re taken home.

Payton’s Closet is already filled with lots of long prom dresses - now they’re asking for shorter dresses to fit the mid-winter formal theme.

Payton plans to continue the project through the rest of the year for prom, and her teacher will take over when she graduates.
