Jackson-Milton students pay it forward on prom night

Posted: Updated:
NORTH JACKSON, Ohio -


Gowns with a bit of sparkle and smiles with some sparkle too, students spent the day getting ready for prom night.

"It was so exciting but so stressful, my hair took forever and it was raining earlier. But it was so much fun to get dressed up," said Tiffany Boland with her date Ryan Slavic.

But the promgoers at Jackson-Milton high, topped off their formal wear with a few extra accessories.

"Dressed all nice and here's my scrub brush!"said Boland.
 
"I just brought a box of crayons, something small cause I didn't wanna carry something huge in," said SADD president and senior Olivia Wolfe.

The juniors and seniors decided to team up with First Federated Church, to collect items to help refugees who are resettling in Ohio.
And on the list of items was school supplies for refugee children, household cleaners and first aid kits.

"Bringing the stuff also shows we should be lucky to have the opportunity to go to prom and to get to dress up with all the money we spend on the dresses and the outfits. it's like good to realize we still need to help people, people who don't get to go to prom>

But promgoers weren't the only ones filling up boxes with donations. In fact, the entire school got involved, with each classroom filling up a box of their own.

"We have a competition between the classes so yeah we're helping people but it's also like a fun competition like what class will get the party at the end or who is going to bring in the most," said Wolfe.

And while prom night will start winding down, the competition to bring in items for refugees won't be.
The school plans to continue collections until June 5th.
