Friday, January 09, 2009JOHNSON CITY — Donations of prom attire for the Head 2 Toe program may be dropped off from now until Jan. 31 at the East Tennessee State University Women’s Resource Center (WRC), located in Panhellenic Hall, at the Sears package pick-up area at the Johnson City Mall, or at Girls Inc.
Head 2 Toe, now in its seventh year, strives to enhance the overall self-image of teen girls by providing prom attire, personalized service, and a shopping experience in a retail setting. On Feb. 21, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., teens are invited to visit Girls Inc., 227 Library Lane (off E. Market Street, behind Munsey Memorial United Methodist Church).
Girls who might otherwise find attending the prom beyond their reach can purchase a low-cost formal dress, shoes and accessories. The proceeds of the sale benefit Girls Incorporated of Johnson City/Washington County.
Head 2 Toe is sponsored by the ETSU Department of Family and Consumer Sciences and the ETSU Women’s Resource Center.
Over the past six years, Head 2 Toe has provided attire for some 400 girls and raised over $8,000 to benefit Girls Inc.
