Dresses for Refugees

WHILE, CLAYTON PLANS HIS CAMPAIGN, OTHER HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE PLANNING FOR SOMETHING A BIT MORE TYPICAL: PROM!

THE SEASON OF SHOPPING FOR DRESSES AND PINNING CORSAGES IS HERE, AS MANY HIGH SCHOOLS MARK THE END OF THE YEAR, WITH THE FORMAL SCHOOL
DANCE. WHILE YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD OF PROM, THE EXPERIENCE IS TOTALLY FOREIGN TO SOME STUDENTS IN GEORGIA.

REFUGEES FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD, WHO HAVE SETTLED THERE, ARE LEARNING ABOUT THIS RIGHT-OF-PASSAGE FIRSTHAND, AS AN ORGANIZATION
KNOWN AS THE INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE HAS GATHERED GENTLY-USED PROM DRESSES FOR REFUGEE GIRLS TO WEAR AS THEY EXPERIENCE THE BIG HIGH
SCHOOL EVENT.  THE ORGANIZATION HOPES THE GIRLS WILL CREATE LASTING HIGH SCHOOL MEMORIES, THAT THEY CAN TAKE WITH THEM TO COLLEGE.
