The Elyse Rebecca Hardin Foundation has been established in her memory by her family and friends.
The foundation will fund various youth activities and educational needs in the community.
A Lancaster High School sophomore, Hardin died in a one-car wreck on Shiloh Unity Road on Dec. 29, 2009. She was 15.
As a tribute to Hardin, the foundation is organizing Dress for Elyse.
Many formal dresses are only worn once and never used again.
