Tuxedos Offered at Toms River and Lakewood Locations During Prom Dress Drive

The Ocean County Library’s Prom Dress Drive and Giveaway will feature tuxedo jackets, vests, shirts, and pants available at our Lakewood and Toms River Branches. These items were part of a generous donation from ‘Dress Me Up – A Unique Boutique’ in Forked River.

The 8th annual Prom Dress Drive and Giveaway will provide formal attire to middle and high school aged students at no charge for their school’s formal events. Last year more than 700 prom dresses were distributed during the giveaway.

Donations can include gently used, modern dresses in both long and short styles, in a wide range of sizes. Distributing branches are also seeking donations of dress racks and mirrors. Items will be accepted until April 23rd.
