GRETNA, Neb. (KMTV) — Helping others feel good about themselves. That's the goal for one Gretna woman. And she's doing it with clothes.

Rachel Eastman founded The Dragon's Closet in September after noticing a need in her community. Needs she wanted to be able to address any time of year. So now hanging next to t-shirts and jackets are over 100 prom dresses. Saturday people in the Gretna Public Schools District will be able to shop for more than just dresses for this prom season.

“We have free eyebrow waxing, spray tanning free boutonnieres and corsages, we have a lady closing her salon for the day to come here and do prom up styles and we also have makeup artists that are coming,” said Eastman.

The closet is located at 317 Paradise Drive and will open Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It is open every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for people who need to pick up every day items.
