Making Prom Special at Jackson-Feild

At high schools across the country, May means “Prom,” and Jackson Feild’s Gwaltney School is no exception.

Each year well in advance of prom, Tod Balsbaugh and Jackson-Feild’s Office of Advancement reaches out to donors and community partners to literally outfit the boys and girls on campus for this special event.

The Short Pump Rotary Club recently conducted a Blue Blazer Drive and collected enough very-gently-used blazers for every high school boy on campus. Balsbaugh was honored to attend the club’s April meeting and receive this generous donation.

Since 2006, the Fairy Godmother Program at The Collegiate School in Richmond has been providing prom dresses, shoes, accessories and an on-campus personal shopping event for the girls at Jackson-Feild. Over the years, more than 400 girls have experienced the fun and excitement of choosing a dress and accessories for prom.

This year’s prom at Jackson-Feild will be held on May 18 and will feature a new special event. Members of Jackson-Feild’s Young Professionals Organization will host a special pre-prom dinner to help make the evening a night the boys and girls will remember for life.

Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services treats children with severe mental health and/or substance use disorders. If your child needs help, don’t hesitate to call 434-634-3217.
