ROCKFORD (WREX) -
An organization that helps young women get ready for the prom season opens its doors this weekend.
Becca's Closet is located at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepard on North Rockton Avenue. It serves as a boutique that collects and distributes formal wear free of charge to those who would not otherwise be able to attend proms.
"When we help girls get dresses, it's really exciting. Some of them have never had on a formal gown before and they actually leave standing a bit taller, feeling more beautiful and confident about themselves and its fun to be a part of that," said Amy Hoening, Becca's Closet worker.
Becca's Closet is located at 1829 North Rockton Avenue will be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon through May 9. Donations are also accepted.
