Operation Prom National Network, Inc., is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps students attend their prom by providing free dresses and tuxedos. Each school year, we collect and distribute prom formal wear as well as accessory items such as shoes, undergarments, jewelry, and bowties. Our goal is to ensure that each student we serve receives the perfect prom attire allowing them to feel confident and empowered.

Mission Statement

Since 2005 the Operation Prom National Network, Inc. has provided teens across the U.S. with resources to receive free prom formal wear. Through our extensive network of prom dress and tuxedo donors, it is our goal to ensure that every student is able to attend their senior prom, despite their financial situation.
