Wicomico County Student Seeks Donations for Upcoming School Dance

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - One Wicomico County student says she's ready to make a difference for many of her classmates and she's doing it with some glittery dresses and an upcoming dance.


Haydyn Scrimgeour is an 8th grader at Bennett Middle School in Salisbury, who recently launched her own campaign called "Dance For Hope."


In her living room, you'll find a rack full of sequined dresses and a table stacked with several pairs of high heels. And they're not for Haydyn's closet. They're Haydyn's version of hope.


"We just wanted to give to the kids who couldn't afford to get the dresses and clothes because everyone should deserve a chance to look their best, feel their best, and have fun," Haydyn said.


She got the idea while shopping with her mom at the mall.


"I had this great idea to get a bunch of dresses and other clothes to donate to the formal that we're having at Bennett Middle School," Haydyn said.


Haydyn says it will be a last hurrah for her and her friends before moving on to high school. And before that happens, Haydyn says she'll be collecting more dresses and shoes. They're donations she says that will all give her classmates a chance to dance.


Haydyn's mom, Haley, says she couldn't be more proud.


"This is just the start of great things to come for her," Haley said. "We're all strangers until it comes to something like this and then everybody just joins together for these efforts."


Haydyn says she'll continue to collect donations until April. She's also collecting monetary donations and anything that will help her get more dresses or shoes as well as dry cleaning for the formal. Haydyn, who is also a singer, also has a song called "Pretend To Be." She says the money from anyone who buys the song will go towards buying suits and shoes for boys in need.


The best way to contact Haydyn to donate is by email at DanceForHope2019@gmail.com
