The Cinderella Project of Maine will give away prom dresses in both Belfast and Gardiner again this year.

The Belfast giveaway will be on Saturday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Renys Plaza.

The Gardiner giveaway will be on Saturday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gardiner Area High School.

Gowns are free to all Maine high school students in need of a dress for prom with one stipulation — that they promise to pay the favor forward in some way by doing something nice for someone else in their community.

It's not too late to donate a dress to the Cinderella Project of Maine. Dresses are accepted until the day of the last giveaway. Dress donations are accepted at any Day’s Jewelers store in the state of Maine. For additional dress drop-off locations, visit

Cinderella Project of Maine is a project of Waldo Community Actions Partners, a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Belfast. Donations are tax-deductible.
