EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- With weddings and other gatherings on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one local business started an “adopt a graduate” program so people can buy decorations for grads who are missing their commencement ceremonies.
Rachel King, the owner of Balloons by JYS, an Evansville-based business that makes decorations for weddings, birthdays, and other events, says people can buy decorative gifts for graduates. King says the program has brought a lot of joy to the graduates.
A portion of the sales are benefitting the Tri-State Food Bank.
More information on the program can be found here.
