Nine Line has been collecting dresses for over two months now. Businesses throughout the community also donated shoes, jewlery, and alteration services.
For the first two hours, dresses and accessories were free for those who qualified. Nisha Giustino started the drive last year because she wanted to give girls the dress shopping experience she never had.
“When I was younger in high school I lived with my father you know we didn’t have the means to buy a brand new 500 dollar dress so I thought you know why not put something together that can help support those young ladies that are in the same situation I was,” said Giustino.
After 10:30 the event was open to the public and dresses were 10 dollars each. All of that money will go to the Nine Line Foundation to help their tiny home initiative for homeless veterans
