The Freecycle Network (TM) is composed of over 5000 groups and almost 9 million members around the world. It's a nonprofit, grassroots organization that gives away things for free. If you need a prom dress, first join the Nassau or Suffolk chapters for free, and then write a post, explaining what you're looking for.
Also, if you have a gown or dress or anything else to donate, you can post that on the chapters' sites for free as well.
Head over to the site and type in "Nassau" or "Suffolk" into the search box and you'll be brought to the appropriate website.
