STAMFORD - A Stamford organization is helping needy girls get free prom dresses.

Kids Helping Kids puts on the annual event, Handled With Care Dress Boutique, at the Yerwood Center in Stamford from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday.

The group came together in 2012 when a local teen realized the financial struggles that can complicate prom dress shopping.

Anyone who stops by can pick up a dress, shoes and accessories for no cost. The clothing all comes from items donated within the community.

Girls can also have their photos taken and receive complimentary hairstyling.
