PHILIPPI -

Alderson Broaddus College students gave back to the community on Saturday with Cinderella's Closet.

Cinderella's Closet is a chance for girls to purchase prom dresses and name the price.

"It's donation based, so however much they want to pay for the dress that's how much they pay," said Sarah Geist, the community outreach coordinator for Alderson Broaddus.

Geist is the advisor of Novo, a community outreach organization. Novo organized the event that collects dresses from a number of places.

"Most of the dresses came from students at AB, community members, a Clarksburg thrift shop called ‘Shepherd's Corner,' they donated a lot of these dresses," Geist said.

Cinderella's Closet offers a lot of variety in the dresses.

"There are all sorts of different colors from black, white, orange, pink, and sizes 0 up to 24," Geist said.

Geist said they see a variety of people coming to buy dresses.

"People who don't want to pay full price, people who have a hard time finding dresses, really anyone who is looking for a formal dress and a good deal," Geist said.

The dresses don't have to be used only for prom.

"I got a dress for the 8th grade dance. I picked a blue dress that fit perfectly," said Naomi Elmore, a student at Belington Middle School.

For Geist, Cinderella's Closet is a great way for the community to come to Alderson Broaddus.

"It's not necessarily just about coming and getting your prom dress, it's about getting the community members to come up on campus and come to Alderson Broaddus College. It's a great way to open our doors especially for the high school girls to come," Geist said

Any of the dresses or accessories not sold this year, will be saved and used for the sale next year.
