PromRack was established to address the issues of children in the foster care system needing attention on rite to passage experiences. Due to the generosity of the Central Texas communities, PROMRACK was extended throughout Central Texas.
PROMRack provides free prom dresses to high school girls in the Central Texas area. PROMRack is more than just a dress. It's a powerful personal experience for each student who attends.
Community volunteers ensure that each student is pampered in a personal shopping day that transforms the student internally as well as the beauty of a dress.
Prom Rack welcomes donations of short and long formal dresses less than 3 years old, just like you see in the stores. We especially need dresses 0-4, 16-22 and 24 +
We also collect evening shoes, handbags and jewelry. Drop off donations at any Westbank Dry Cleaning year round. You may also drop off donations at The Department of Family Protective Services by calling 512 900-7827.
Volunteers are the salt of the earth.
The salt of the earth is referred to as a person or group that is regarded as genuine, unpretentious, and morally sound. This is the description of PROMRack volunteers!
This is an opportunity to meet some amazing young people and the best volunteers on the planet.
If you are volunteering for the 9:30 - 1:30 morning session, please email Brenda Jones, Brenda.firstname.lastname@example.org for a required background form.
The last day for submission is March 23, 2019.
This year registration on our Eventbrite page will be required to attend. The signup link will be active March 1, 2019.

In 2003, with the hope of helping just a handful of girls in foster care attend their school proms, The Prom Princess Project was started by a girl who had also experienced life in foster care. In 2005, Gigi Edwards Bryant added the program to the Write To Me Foundation and changed the name to PROMRack. The more general name allowed our organization to incorporate an event for boys in foster care. From 2005-2010, the event was hosted at The Four Seasons in Austin, TX. We were blessed by their community outreach, generosity, amazing staff and Chef Elmar Prambs. We've moved locations over the years to try to reach different groups of students in the community, but our mission has always remained the same....to provide important rite of passage experiences to youth in the Austin/Central Texas community.
PromRack is a 501c3 that provides prom dresses to youth in the Austin/Central Texas area.
