LEX Project Prom is a non-profit organization that hosts an annual event to provide a free shopping experience for under-resourced students to attend their Senior Prom. Throughout the year, we collect gently used and new Prom dresses and purchase other items with the help of community donations.
Our Mission is to provide an opportunity for those students who otherwise could not afford to attend their Senior Prom. We want to address and acknowledge that in some homes, attending Prom is merely a privilege that many students may not have.
In Spring of 2019 and 2021, we were able to send over 50 students to their Senior Prom with zero financial obligation. Each student was given the opportunity to receive a complete tuxedo or dress package that included full attire, shoes, and accessories - and even a personal shopper! Each student was also able to schedule a hair, nail, and makeup appointment with professionals to complete their Prom looks for their special day.
Although, due to Covid-19, Prom 2020 did not occur, we still honored our students with a Senior Salute and baskets full of gifts.
The more support we receive, the greater impact we can all make, It take a village!
