St. Louis (KSDK) -- Several groups are coming together to collect prom dresses that can be passed along to teens who do not have the means to purchase a new dress for prom.

Through February 29, 2012, donated prom dresses will be accepted at customer service at Chesterfield Mall, Mid Rivers Mall, South County Center and West County Center. Gowns of all shapes and sizes are welcome. The dresses should be on hangars.

The donated dresses will be available at a temporary Cinderella boutique, opening in March at Mid Rivers Mall. Students referred by school counselors or social service agencies can shop and select a free dress. After the students have made their selections, the boutique will be open to the public and all gowns will be sold for $29.

Anyone who is interested in helping with the Metro St. Louis Cinderella Project, can call 636-978-2277,or send an email to Cinderella!communitycouncilstc.org.
