An organization in Southington is trying to make it easier for students to afford to go to school proms.
Kristen’s Kloset, a program under Southington Youth Services, has about 500 new and gently used prom gowns for students. The program is open to any high school student who wants to attend prom.
Students with a valid school ID can attend the event happening on Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be a fitting room available.
No appointment is required and a suggested $25 donation for the gown is appreciated.
A seamstress is donating her time to fit the girls and will make follow-up appointments if needed.
Kristen’s Kloset is also helping with purchasing tuxedo rentals. Students can contact Southington Youth Services at 860-276-6281 for more information.
The most convenient parking for the weekend event is located in the back of Southington High School near the Varsity Baseball Field. The event is held inside the freshman cafeteria.
