STAMFORD - A Stamford mom is giving girls in need the chance to dress up and be ready for prom without the expensive price tag.
Holly Hyman says the idea for her latest project happened during a conversation with a friend. Hyman started the Cinderella Project, a prom dress collection for girls in need of gowns, when Stamford High School gave her the go-ahead.
In one month, Hyman says she's collected more than 200 gowns, 40 pairs of shoes and evening bags.

Girls can pick out dresses all day Wednesday at Stamford High School, and a $20 donation is encouraged for a prom ticket fund. Hyman says she is overwhelmed by the support.
She's still accepting donated gowns, shoes and accessories. Dresses that aren't used will be donated.
Hyman plans to continue the Cinderella Project, even collecting dresses for graduation.
