KARE team typically has between 20 and  30 dresses available to anybody who needs one this prom season.

   Amy Moran, KARE Team sponsor, said that the team relies on donations from former and current students to keep the dress drive stocked.  The gowns are cleaned, prepared and arranged in room 103 for students.

   “Just talk to your counselor, and we’ll let you try the dresses on,” Moran said.

   During the rest of the year, KARE team manages the food pantry, a collection of food for any Kickapoo student and their family should they need it.

   Moran and KARE team members wash and prepare the dresses for their future wearers.

   “They’re really pretty dresses,” Moran said, even though she explained that the dress drive does not contain the most fashion-forward dresses.

   Senior member JaMya Dean has been a member of  KARE Team for three years and has always been a part of the dress drive.

   “What KARE team is doing is really good because we’re able to provide for somebody who wouldn’t be able to pay for it out-of-pocket, especially since prom dresses are really expensive.  The fact that we do this is very special because girls are able to dress up and have opportunities that they normally wouldn’t have without KARE Team,” Dean said.

This year’s dresses, like every year’s dresses, promise to make their wearers beautiful, confident and the belle of the ball.  Mothers across town will tear up at the sight of their darlings on their big night.

   The biggest trends for dresses this year, KARE Team sponsor Amy Moran says, includes floral print and two-piece dresses.  Floral dresses have been a staple for fashion for more than a thousand years, especially in ancient Japan, China and India.  The modern resurgence of florals made their way into American fashion in the 20s and 30s.  From there on out, flowers and floral gowns have  been a welcome part of everybody’s closet for the last century.
