Polk County Early College will be putting on a formal dress drive during December for any and all students free of charge.

PCEC hopes to provide students with gowns for the Winter Formal as well as any other holiday functions. The school currently has hundreds of dresses ranging in sizes, shapes, styles and shades.

The dress drive will be held on the following dates

* Friday, December 1, 3-5 p.m.
* Saturday, December 2, 8 a.m.-noon
* Sunday, December 3, 2-6 p.m.

A similar effort will be held in the spring for the prom.
