Macy's promenade robe giveaway advantages women and girls with mental disabilities – Press of Atlantic Metropolis

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – Sara Davis, of Ocean City, is taking courses in the career-independent study program of Living and Learning at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania

Davis, 22, is in her third year in the program and was looking for a dress she could wear to a big party thrown in her honor when she graduates from college.

Davis chose a white gown with brightly colored flowers as her favorite from the 400+ ball gowns Macy & # 39; s handed out Friday through the FACES 4 Autism organization behind the D & # 39; Amato law firm building on Fire Road.

"Anything that makes them look beautiful," said Davis' mother Susan Davis, 60, of the criteria that make a particular ball gown a keeper.

Susan Davis heard about the prom and giveaway for Easter dresses from her involvement with 21 Down, an awareness group for Down syndrome.

Students have been wearing blue every year since 2004 and gather outside to blow bubbles in April …

The COVID-19-related calamity for Macy's turned into an unexpected benefit for boys, girls and women with intellectual disabilities in South Jersey.

Since Macy & # 39; s was closed during the prom season, it donated 480 prom dresses and 186 Easter outfits for young children to the local FACES 4 Autism organization. FACES stands for Families of Autistic Children Education Support Groups.

Miriam Boudreau, Macy's rtheast Sales Specialist, said it was the best Macy's store on Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing could do at such a time.

"Fashion changes every season and it is much better to send it to a different store for sale," said Boudreau. "I'm glad this will help so many smile."

Sandy Evans, 54, and her daughter Carlie Evans, 16) drove all the way down from West Creek, Eagleswood Township, Ocean County to partake in the gown giveaway.

BRIGANTINE – With a pink pool noodle under her arms, Sari Carroll started a round of …

The winning selection for the Evans was a dress with light blue and white flowers. The dress wasn't too heavy, said Mama. The dress wasn't too puffy either, but it was hard to tell if this was a higher priority for mother or daughter. Mom said the dress was a perfect match for her daughter. All it needed was a snap in the back that one of her friends could sew.

Sandy Evans is hoping the Night to Shine event will take place at Bayside Chapel in Barnegat Township in February so her daughter can wear the dress.

"Carlie is pretty much the dancer," said Evans. "I am very grateful for such events for our children."

FACES 4 Autism Founder Isabelle Mosca welcomed Macy & # 39; s call about the prom dresses. The store was looking for a charitable donation, and FACES was the first organization to call back, Mosca said.

"We all work together. When we saw the band, we were shocked," said Mosca of the number of dresses given away. "It's an amazing opportunity to give back."

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – The Hamilton Mall was sold to New York-based Namdar Realty Group, A …

After giving away ball gowns and Easter outfits on Friday and Saturday, Mosca will be calling organizations that include the Arc of Atlantic County Thrift Store, Atlantic City Boys and Girls Club, Project Prom, Atlantic County Special Services, and Heart of Surfing the rest of the way new home.

Before Mosca could give away the rest of the clothes, Gina Schwartz (49) and her daughter Nicole Schwartz (17) from Manahawkin looked at the selection, which was displayed on bars in hangars on Friday.

Nicole Schwartz chose a short, sparkling, mint colored dress and a long, all-white dress with blue flowers. She hopes to wear them to a future homecoming, prom, or Night to Shine.

"They fit their personality. She is the boss," said Gina Schwartz.
