Every spring, thousands of students across the country celebrate a rite of passage: PROM.
Operation Prom National Network is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps low-income students attend their proms by providing free prom dresses and tuxedos.
The average cost of a Prom ticket is $100 in the U.S., so every penny helps. Please donate to help us help teens in need. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Operation Prom National Network is based in New York, but has locations all over the United States including Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Georgia, and Indiana. 100% of the staff is made up volunteers. No one at OPNN takes a salary. Operation Prom Nation Network is partnered with several community organizations, including departments of social services, churches, and hospitals.
“Through the commitment of Prom Connecticut, you are conscious of the circumstances that encompass the daily lives of many students, especially those from the modest economic backgrounds. Without your assistance, many students would not attend prom. The CT Fatherhood Initiative is grateful and proud to receive the most elegant formalwear donations from such a philanthropic and compassionate organization.”
“Thank you so much for my tuxedo for prom. Your kindness will never be forgotten. God bless this nonprofit organization.”
Realizing that there were no organizations to help students in her community attend prom, Noel D’Allacco, a native of Yonkers, New York, founded Operation PROM. Now, more than 19 years later, Noel has established the Operation Prom National Network, Inc. A resource for students, parents, and schools to find organizations and community groups that can provide free formal wear to teens in need.
As a leader in her community, Noel has been named one of Westchester County’s (NY) top 40 business leaders under 40, and has received many awards for her community service. She has been featured on national news outlets such as ABC, CNN, Fox, and NBC. In addition to her role at the Operation Prom National Network, she works with other local non-profits including the Women’s Enterprise Development Center. She has been an Assistant Professor for the School of Business at the College of Westchester for the past 16 years.
