Volunteers help local nonprofit after flood

On Sunday, volunteers from across the community helped Hannah’s Prom and Dress Closet recover from flooding damages.

Rainwater from Thursday’s storm poured into their basement, leaving hundreds of formal dresses soggy and dirty.

Teens from across the region go to Hannah’s Prom and Dress Closet to find the perfect dress for special occasions. They can take home any dress for free. But, that’s on hold until the group cleans up the damage from the flood.

Today volunteers cleaned dressed and tore up carpet. Riley Shultz, a volunteer at the closet, said this setback won’t keep them down for long.

“We are going to keep going,” said Shultz. “We are going to try no matter what to get this fixed.”
