We are back and excited to give away FREE formal wear 

InnerAct Alliance and UthMpact are proud to present the 5th year of the Project Hoco effort to provide formal wear and accessories to deserving high school students and educate youth and parents about the risky behaviors that may occur during prom and graduation time. Students with a Polk County School ID can sign a pledge to celebrate alcohol and drug-free and receive their dresses and suits for FREE!


Project Hoco Store Student Shopping Days at Lakeland Square Mall - 3800 US Hwy 98N in Lakeland (next to The Children's Place - Across from Hollister) - will be held from            11:00 AM to 4:00 PM on:

Saturday, September 17
Saturday, October 1
Saturday, October 8
Saturday, October 22.


Since 2013, over 5,250 prom ensembles have been provided at no cost to young women and men in Polk County. Community members may support the effort by donating gently used dresses, shoes, men’s suits, and accessories. Especially needed are women’s dresses in sizes XS (0-3) and Plus Sizes (18+) and men’s dress pants (waist 30-36) and dress shirts (all sizes).


Formal wear donations may be dropped off at the Project Hoco Store on shopping dates, at the InnerAct Alliance office (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays), or at select Polk County Public High Schools.
