WHITE PLAINS - One group is helping young people look their best for upcoming proms.

For the past 10 years, Operation Prom has provided free prom dresses to thousands of young women.

The program is the brainchild of Noel D'Allacco of Eastchester.

Since she started Operation Prom, about 5,000 donated dresses have been given to girls in the tri-state area, plus thousands more in spinoff units that have been established in several other states.

The Westchester Department of Social Services also plays a role in helping the girls find what they need.

The Operation Prom giveaway continues Friday and Saturday.
