Businesses donate to graduating seniors

Slack and Wallace offering tribute videos

SOUTH POINT — With graduation ceremonies upended and the final months of school canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, high school seniors in our area are getting gifts from local businesses.

Earlier this week, Ever Clean Janitorial Service donated more than $1,000 worth of gift cards to the class of 2020 at South Point High School, while another South Point business is offering a service to seniors across the Tri-State.

Slack and Wallace Funeral Home is offering free graduation/tribute videos to seniors.

Beth Wallace, co-owner of the funeral home, said they are asking graduates or their families to send the name of the senior, along with a list of accomplishments, awards and hobbies.

She said they would then create a link to which up to 150 photos can be uploaded. Once that is complete and they are notified, they will send a preview video to the family. “If that’s OK, we will send two free DVDs to the senior,” Wallace said.

She those interested can email info@slackandwallace.com.

She said interest has been high and, in the first day since she posted the offer, she has already worked on 16 videos.
