There are many opportunities for students to volunteer and do community service.

One way is Project Prom, which is a program ran by the Helping Hands. Instructor Michelle Thacker is the head sponsor who helps run the program.

“Project Prom is a community service project sponsored by the Helping Hands Program,” Thacker said. “We collect formal wear, clothing, and accessories. These items are made available to any students that wish to make a selection.”

The program was created as a way for the Helping Hands students to experience a community service project that would serve the peer group. Many businesses find ways to give back to the community, and this is the way the Helping Hands students give back.

Thacker had a conversation with Tom Albers about a similar program that is located in the Kansas City area. She did some research on the idea and felt it would be good for this area.

“There is a great need for a place to bring all of those formals that are hanging in closets,” Thacker said. “We have the group that can benefit the most current students that have an opportunity to go to formal dances like the prom.”

Other people can help out by spreading the word for the program and bringing in donations of clothing year round.

“We hope you will join us in donating formal wear to Project Prom to Remember,” Thacker said. “So others can enjoy and make prom possible.”
