Got Prom on your mind? Meet Melody Schmidt, co-founder of Peninsula Prom Closet. She’s got Prom on her mind all the time!


By: Joelle Arner S ixteen year old Melody Schmidt and her fourteen year old sister Christy are just normal


teenagers who like to play soccer, dance, and go to the beach. But these two girls are different from other teenagers. The two sisters founded their own organization when they were only twelve and ten after reading in a newspaper about girls who couldn’t afford prom dresses. After learning about this, they thought of what they could do to help and Peninsula Prom Closet was born. Since it was started, hundreds of dresses have been donated and given to girls who can’t afford a dress. The dresses are stored in their garage for now and picked up by shelters who distribute the dresses to the girls in need.
