A local group is working to help girls who can't afford to attend their prom.

The Fairy Godmothers of Greater Rochester is holding a prom dress drive on Sunday at Marketplace Mall. They will be gathering prom dresses for girls who otherwise would not be able to pay for them or attend prom. The drive will run on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

They will then hold a dress giveaway at an event in April.

This is the tenth year the group has held a prom dress drive and they say they've helped over 5,000 girls.
