Pay it Forward: Girls collecting prom dresses for those in need
PORT ARTHUR-By: Leslie Rangel
They call themselves the Ivy League.
It's a group of young women who collect items for those in need during all times of the year.
During this Spring season, the group is collecting prom dresses for girls who can't afford the pricey gowns.
Gowns in all sorts of colors and some are even new.
The idea for the group came from one of the girl's mothers, Akilah Lewis.
As a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, she saw the need for young women to start getting involved in community service projects to build their character.
So as a part of our partnership with Cowboy Silsbee, we decided to pay it forward.Friday, August 2 2013, 09:38 PM CDT
