Prom & Formal Dress Give-Away


Saturday, November 10, 2018 - 10:00


Lawrence Public Library

Description: I work with the Social Service League in Lawrence, KS and every year we do the “Prom & Formal Dress Give-Away.” What started as a program for low income students who couldn’t afford a formal or prom dress has become a recycle and reuse program. We discovered that there are students who enjoy the idea of donating and receiving a dress rather than spending top dollar on one at the mall. For many students, especially these days, money is tight and any chance they can shop on a “clearance” rack, they will. This program has grown and is great fun. This Fall we have opened it up to Baldwin City students, Perry Lecompton, and Eudora (as well as both Lawrence high schools and middle schools). We collect gently used, new, and well-kept dresses. The stories I can tell from being a volunteer would warm your heart. We are hoping to get the word out for dress donations and to have students come to get dresses on November 10th. If you are interested in more information, please do not hesitate to contact me at 785-424-5861. To donate dresses: they can be dropped off at Social Service League, Lawrence Public Library, Plato's Closet, Ditto's Boutique, and Urban Outfitters. The event itself is on November 10, 2018 at the Lawrence Public Library from 10 - 12 pm for students - bring ID and noon - 3 for students and public. A $5 donation is suggested per dress for the public. Dresses are free for students with ID. Submitted by: Michele Vignola Rogers Social Service League
