    Nine Line Apparel is gearing up for its second annual Operation: Prom Dress.

    It's a donation drive that helps give underprivileged young women in the Savannah area all the things they might need for a memorable, magical prom night.

    From now until March 7, Nine Line will be collecting new and gently used prom dresses, heels and jewelry.

    Last year, they received more than 400 dresses and they're looking to get as many as possible this year.

    In addition to clothing and accessory donations, they will also be accepting Visa gift cards to give to the girls to help with accessories.

    “Last year, the prom dress drive was amazing. We actually had some young ladies crying because they were so thankful," said Nisha Giustino, the Operation: Prom Dress organizer. "This year, if any school guidance counselors can identify young ladies at their school, I would love for them to come in before the prom dress drive so they get first picking.”

    Operation: Prom Dress will be teaming up with Kendra Scott's Broughton Street location Sunday to donate 20 percent of purchases made to the dress drive.

    The drive will be held at Nine Line on March 9 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

    Donations can be dropped off at the following locations:

    • Nine Line Apparel - 450 Fort Argyle Rd, Savannah
    • September's Closet - 7360 Skidaway Rd, Savannah
    • Nicole Casino Luxury Realty - 4 River Birch Lane, Savannah
