Operation Cinderella is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that gives a free prom dress, shoes, and accessories to low-income and under-served students. Each student is given an invitation from their school guidance counselor that explains what the event is, and when they can arrive. While at the event every girl receives a gift bag full of fun products, they have their hair and make-up done, and then wait their turn to enter the boutique with their fairy godmother to pick out their prom ensemble. Our goal is to value and care for each girl we are lucky enough to serve. It is a day of pampering and glitz! Each girl gets a dress…..but Operation Cinderella is so much more than a dress!

Personal Info

We are always looking for shoes, jewelry, clutches, fun items to put into the participants’ gift bags. Check out the drop-off tab to see where dresses and accessories can be dropped off. Please email if you have products for the girls’ gift bags and we will arrange how to pick up items.

We cannot do this without your generosity. Thank you!
