Independence Blue Crew volunteers help more than 200 students shop for prom

On March 21, the Cozen PAL Center in Fairmount opened its “Prom Boutique” to make prom night unforgettable for over 200 young shoppers. For the ninth consecutive year, the boutique provided students from PAL centers across the city with the total shopping experience.

Blue Crew volunteers were there to help shoppers try on dresses, accessories, and shoes. All shoppers went home with a new or gently used prom dress, shoes, accessories, and new makeup kit – at no cost – thanks to donations from across the city.
