KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's prom season. Not all families can afford on the bells and whistles that go along with the big dance.

The girls browsed the dress selection on Saturday and you could feel the excitement in the air. Angie Preston helped her daughter find the perfect dress.

It's her senior year so she's really trying to do it big," Preston said. "I'm trying to go all out for her. Why not? I appreciated this. This is really good."

Shivon Bullock founded the Show Me Shoes Foundation with a friend. Now, in its second year, she says it feels good to make a difference.

"We don't want any girls to be left behind and sometimes parents just cannot do it," Bullock said.

She says parents show their gratitude and it touches her heart.

"I really get emotional because I never knew such a small thing could touch people in a great way," she said. "They have a good time they send us pictures they can go to prom now."

All of the dresses and accessories are donated and offered to the girls free of charge.
