By From page A3 | March 31, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Youth Commission is inviting local students to visit this year’s prom closet.

The Prom Closet is an annual event hosted by the Youth Commission, with support from Old Navy, to reuse prom dresses and accessories. More than 150 dresses have already been collected and will be given away at the event.

Students may select a dress to take home at no charge. Shoes and other accessories may also be available.

Local makeup and hair professionals will be on hand to offer workshops on hair and makeup tips to help students be ready for prom season.

The Prom Closet will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Fairfield Community Center, 1000 Kentucky St. in Fairfield.

The Youth Commission is collecting gently used prom dresses, special occasion jewelry, purses and wraps as well as formal shoes for both boys and girls. Prom clothing suitable for boys is also being collected.

Donations will be accepted until Wednesday and can be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Sullivan Interagency Youth Services Center, or from 3 to 9 p.m. at the Fairfield Police Activities League Center. Both are located at 2195 Union Ave. in Fairfield.

For more information, call 422-6288.
