Canfield girl collected formalwear for those less fortunate

Posted: Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio - A local high school senior is asking for your help to relieve the financial stress on families during prom and wedding season.

Megan Factor of Canfield is collecting slightly used formal dresses.

The dresses will be donated to DIVA Donations, a non-profit organization that helps provide dresses to women and girls who need one for a formal event like a prom or wedding.

"I just wanted to reach out to the community to collect dresses for girls who may not necessarily be able to afford them and just really make a difference in some girl's life," Factor said.

Megan will be collecting the dresses through this Thursday from 4:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the Canfield United Methodist Church.
