Operation Prom was originally established in New York to help low-income, sick or disabled students attend their Proms by providing free Prom dresses and tuxedo rentals. It is now a national organization that helps thousands of girls around the country who demonstrate financial need and are in good academic standing. Noel D�Allacco, the founder and executive director of Operation Prom, started the not-for-profit after she began collecting bridesmaid dresses from clients and donating them to students from her high school.
