DALLAS, TEXAS - Comerica Bank will host its fifth annual Prom Dress Drive, benefitting Dallas CASA and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas, during the month of February. Five Dallas-area Comerica banking centers will serve as drop-off locations for new or gently-used, cleaned formal dresses and accessories.
Donations will benefit local teen girls, who otherwise may not be able to afford formal attire and experience the high school tradition of prom. Comerica has donated more than 3,200 dresses to Dallas CASA and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas in the last four years, including a record 1,230 in 2018.

About Dallas CASA
All children have the right to be safe. Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children. For many of these children, their CASA volunteer is the only consistent, caring adult during a frightening, uncertain time. In 2018, Dallas CASA’s 1,420 volunteers advocated for 3,325 Dallas children. But one out of five Dallas children in foster care does not have a volunteer advocate. Dallas CASA hopes to become the largest nonprofit CASA program in the country to serve all Dallas County abused children in protective care who need a CASA volunteer.
