Groups teaming up to provide prom-type event for HCHS Class of 2020

Although Hardin County High School isn’t holding a prom this year because of the coronavirus situation, local organizations are teaming up to offer a similar event for HCHS seniors on Aug. 1.
In preparation for the dance being held at Freddy T’s in Pickwick, Sisters Impacting Savannah is working to provide prom-type attire for males and females at no cost to the new graduates.
SIS, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to “make an impact to the community by providing impacting programs and activities regardless of age, color, sex, gender or religion,” is hosting its second annual “From Head to Toe” event on July 11. It takes place at Temple Baptist Church next to Wal-Mart in Savannah, from 2-5 p.m.
Students can shop and select free items at the boutique-style venue where a professional beauty consultant will be on hand to give health and beauty tips. Etiquette demonstrations are also available, according to SIS President Virginia White.
New and unused goods available include prom dresses, purses, jewelry, cuff links, bow ties, shirts, shoes, makeup and hair accessories and more.
To donate goods or cash, contact any Sisters Impacting Savannah member or call 731-607-1429.
The local UT Extension office and volunteer members of the Hardin County 2020 Graduation Celebration Committee are planning, conducting and supervising the dance.
