Amanda Meyer and a host of volunteers set up shop in St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church for a few hours of free prom prep last Thursday—offering free manicures, pedicures, hair-styling, makeup and lunch to girls who may not be able to otherwise afford it on the big day.

“I did makeup last year for a girl who couldn’t really afford it, and all year I’ve just been wanting to do it again,” Meyer said. “Every girl deserves to feel beautiful on her prom day.”

After reaching out on social media for supply donations, Meyer says she was overwhelmed with the support she received—including help from two hair-stylists, a caterer, and makeup and nail artists.
