Apex Prom Shoppe offers free dresses to needy girls, seeks donations

Posted February 6, 2013

The Apex United Methodist Church's Prom Shoppe is slated for March 15 this year.

Last year, I featured Stacy Kivett, one of the moms behind the program. The one-day boutique features free prom dresses and accessories for girls in the region who wouldn't be able to afford them.

Stacy asked me to spread the word about the shop to let girls know about it. It's 3 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., March 15, at Peak United Methodist Church, 1200 N. Salem St., in Apex.

Stacy also tells me that they could use some plus size dresses and accessories. If you have dresses to donate, please email Stacy at All donations are tax deductible.

    I think these programs are great. I did not attend my senior prom many years ago because I could not afford it. I was trying to meet my basic needs(groceries) in high school and going to prom was a luxury I could not afford. I don't think they had these programs many years ago. I went on to college and a successful career but I still remember not being able to afford going to the prom.

    I think their main need right now is plus sized dresses, but I would definitely contact Stacy and see if she can use what you have.

    The way the article is worded it sounds like they need only plus sized dresses and accessories. Is this correct? If not, can it be a non-plus sized dress that has had alterations? Thanks!
