Prom drive becomes a labour of love

The drive to find prom dresses and suits to help needy graduating students in Thorncliffe and Flemingdon Park is becoming an annual labour of love for Leasider Alexa Rocca.

For the third year in a row she is asking that suitable and laundered slightly used clothing for the big event be donated up to April 3.

The clothing will be taken to The Prom Boutique at New Circles Community Services.

Items can be dropped off at Bosley Real Estate, 290 Merton St., attn. Patrick Rocca, or can by picked up by emailing Alexa at .

Her father says, “The actual day of the fittings for suits and dresses is quite incredible. My familt has volunteered to help the kids with fittings and choice of dress/suit and it’s very heart warming to see the smiles on these kids’ faces.”
