East LA seniors get prom help from foundation

EAST LOS ANGELES

The students from Lincoln and Wilson high schools picked out dresses, shoes and accessories on Saturday for the biggest dance of the year.

The I Have a Dream Foundation collected the donated prom attire, after learning about the students' struggles to pay for the costly event.

Student Wendy Perez said she found a beautiful dress for prom, as well as a few other items she could use for job interviews.

The students say they're very thankful for the donations.

The foundation works with students in impoverished communities, helping them get a good education and a better life.
