Closet gears up for proms

The Enterprise

It’s prom season, and Drexel H. Foundation’s Formal Closet program is ready to help teens look their best.

The Closet offers tuxes and more than 300 free formal dresses for teens. It is available to anyone who wants a free outfit and can pledge to volunteer skills or time in exchange to help Drexel’s many programs.
