Prom/grad giveaway returns


The people at FreeHelpCK are back in action in preparation for this year’s prom and grad seasons.

For the fifth year, the organization will have a slew of garments available for students at no charge.

“At FreeHelpCK, we believe that everyone deserves to feel their absolute best on their prom night and graduation day, regardless of their financial circumstances,” organizers said in a media release.

To that end, the group has more than 500 dresses, suits, shoes, and jewelry items ready to be given away to those who may not be able to afford these items.

The items will be available in the Downtown Chatham Centre beginning March 15.

The FreeHelp crew also has a day planned in May where professional makeup artists and photographers will be available to help complete the transformation.

“It’s incredible to witness the impact this initiative has had over the years. Being able to help students celebrate and cherish these important milestones without worrying about the financial burden is truly rewarding,” organizers said. “We owe our gratitude to our kind-hearted donors, volunteers, and businesses who have made this event possible year after year.”

Organizers ask that if anyone has clothing or jewelry they’d like to donate to contact FreeHelpCK at
