To donate gently used, clean gowns and prom accessories please contact Southington Youth Services at 860-276-6281.
Kristen's Kloset is a program of Youth Services that provides prom essentials to students in need. Besides helping girls with gowns and such, Kristen's Kloset assists boys with their prom related expenses including tuxes and flowers. The program is in it's 8th year of operation and has steadily increased the number of students it has helped. Last year, Kristen's Kloset provided gowns and accessories to over 260 girls who came from all over Connecticut.
The program relies on donations from individuals, civic organization, businesses and volunteers to be successful. From the storefront location which changes every year, to gowns, jewelry, shoes, purses and help to work at the shop, everything is donated. Cash donations are also welcomed.
The program is named after Kristen Warner, a Southington middle school student, who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2004. Her family initiated this program in her honor and Southington Youth Services has expanded it over the years.
From the 2nd week of March until the 2nd week of May, donations may be dropped off at the shop location.
