Teens of Excellence Prom Closet Program needs formalwear donations for Male and Female Teens

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- The Housing Authority of Fulton County (HAFC) and the Resident Advisory Board (RAB) want donations of formal wear and accessories for the fifth annual “Teens of Excellence” Prom Closet Program.

HAFC is seeking donations of gently used and clean prom/formal dresses and tuxedoes of all sizes for high school seniors graduating in May 2014. Donations of larger size formal wear are especially needed.

The program seeks to help single parents, grandparents and/or guardians on fixed incomes to provide prom wear without the disappointing choice of saying no to a teen about purchasing formalwear because of limited income.

The formal wear is provided to high school seniors, with priority given to Housing Authority of Fulton County residents. In 2013, more than 250 high school seniors in Fulton County received donated formal clothing to wear to their proms.

As in previous years, items needed for the 2014 Prom Closet include:

See the salon where Santa's helpers get their style

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- We all know Santa can't be everywhere. Sometimes he needs his helpers, and his helpers need to know how to look like Santa.

To do it, they go to Golden Scissors -- Metro Atlanta's foremost Santa salon.

"It's a fun process," says Sharon Franklin, who runs the salon. "At least, it is for me; not for them, maybe."

Franklin and her team have been coiffing Clauses for 35 years.

"The first year we did it, we did it for free," she said. "We thought we'd get more ladies to come out and be blondes, but instead we got more Santa Clauses."

Today Franklin's team styles nearly 200 of Santa's helpers every year, and not just from Georgia.

Says Franklin, "They come from Mexico, Canada, and New York, among others."
