It's getting close to prom season, which means stressful financial times for teens struggling to buy an expensive dress.

Some Tucson girls got to take home the dresses of their dreams Thursday free of charge.

For the past seven years, Cinderella's Closet has been giving away free dresses. Sisters Melissa Tureaud and Jennifer McCaig started the business after getting the idea from a magazine.

Tureaud said the program means a lot ot high school girls.

Cinderella's Closet collects new and gently-used prom dresses year-round. You can drop them off at the State Farm office at Broadway and Prudence from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, click here.
