"Giggey Girl Gowns" is Open for Business!

"Giggey Girl Gowns" is Open for Business!

My name is Kassidy Giggey and I am a Brewer High School student and the founder of a brand new DonateMyDress.org branch called “Giggey Girl Gowns”. We run a dress donation program through my church, The Community of Christ Church in Brewer, Maine. I have never had to experience such a hard circumstance. Someone in my family has always been there to provide for me, even when it comes to dresses. Recently while looking for prom dresses, I found that the dress I wanted was going to be around $280.00. Luckily, I have a job and will be able to afford the dress.
