Communiteens - Weston is hosting another event!! Last Friday, Brooke Behar and her chapter plans to create medals for We Finish Together, an organization that donates these medals to people in need. They plan to decorate 300 medals in the next few weeks, changing the lives of over 300 people. Glad to see the success of this group last Friday!
Communiteens Chapters around the United States are continuing to make a difference in their communities!!
Our South Carolina Communiteens chapter led by Tyler Crookes is collecting Gently used shoes to give to children in third world countries. They are trying to reach 2500 pairs of shoes collected in 60 days. Good Luck with reaching the goal! I'm sure you will!
Our Parkland Communiteens chapter led by Molly and Rebecca Marks completed their Harvest Drive Project. At this event, they collected hundreds of dollars worth of non-perishable items from a Publix in Coral Springs. They handed out flyers and were very successful. I am so Glad to hear that they had a successful event!!
Our Cooper City Communiteens chapter run by Jonathan Greenip is hosting a sneaker drive. They will be working with GotSneakers? and I Care I Cure to donate shoes and raise money. For every wearable shoe donated to GotSneakers?, 1 dollar will go to the I Care I Cure foundation. Make sure to support this event if you can!
So Happy to see every chapter making their impact!
Communiteens - Davie has completed an event! They collected, sorted, and donated 250 cans and items to LifeNet4Families. Thank you so much to Ally and all the volunteers who helped make such an awesome and successful event! I cannot wait to see the growth of this chapter and the events that they create!
The Florida region has now acquired a new chapter. Parkland, Florida is now home to a Chapter of Communiteens. It is run by 2 Co-Chapter Presidents, Molly and Rebecca. To Learn more about them, you can find them under the "About Us" page. I know that they are going to be very successful and I cannot wait to see their progress and success over the next few years!
Communiteens - AHS has had a very successful start this school year. We have had several meetings since the beginning of the school year, even though the Hurricane prevented one of the meetings. We even hosted their first event! We collected items for Hurricane Irma through a school-wide event to help collect items for those affected by the Hurricane. We were very successful and I am excited to see the future progress of this club/chapter!
After South Florida was impacted by Hurricane Irma, a category 3 hurricane that directly hit Naples and Key West, many people were affected by the wind and rain in a negative way. People's homes were destroyed and power was lost for days on end. Communiteens has decided to help South Floridians who are negatively impacted by the storm.
Through LifeNet4Families, an organization that helps homeless individuals and family get food, we will be hosting a drive. Communiteens - Cooper City, AHS, and Davie will be collecting new Peanut Butter, Pasta, and Non-Perishable food throughout this week. If you are looking to impact your community by donating food, make sure to reach out to us.
Contact me at 954-610-1571 or email@example.com to donate food items or contact me about any questions.
Tyler Crookes and the South Carolina Communiteens Chapter has finished another event! They have collected and donated 60 toiletry bags and will be donating them to a homeless shelter. Congratulations to Communiteeens - SC and can't wait for more events!
Hello Everyone! After a long, relaxing summer it is time to continue to change the world! We have a lot planned for this upcoming school year and I know the rest of the chapters are starting to get their chapter events planned as well! This year, we are adding several other chapters, including a Cooper City (run by Jonathan Greenip), American Heritage (run by Jared Cohen), and Davie (run by Ally Einbinder)! I am sure they/we will do great this year just like the rest of the Communiteens Presidents!
I will continue to post on the blog and Facebook to tell everyone about the future events of the chapters. If you know anyone who would like to become a Chapter President, please give them my number: 954-610-1571, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
food Hello everyone, Communiteens has ended the year extremely well. I am glad to see a large impact by every chapter over the past month.
Communiteens - South Carolina, led by Tyler Crookes, worked hard with a couple of friends at a lacrosse tournament. He kept score and helped the organizers run the tournament. In addition, the South Carolina chapter has collected hundreds of toiletries for the past few months and will organize them into kits over the summer, where they will by given to a local homeless shelter. I am so glad to see 2 projects being done by this chapter and I know that more successful projects will be completed in the near future
In Communiteens - Weston and Davie news, the two chapters were finalists for two Hands on Broward Youth Impact Awards in the Team and Individual categories. The Award Ceremony was on 5/19/17 at JA Biztown, at an elegant dinner and ceremony, hosted by Hands on Broward . It was very nice to be honored at such an amazing ceremony. Communiteens - Davie will be finishing it's last project in early June, where they will go to a local pantry.
It has been an amazing year, full of excitement and growth. We are continuing to expand our organization and we plan to have several new chapters open in the next few months. I hope these chapters are just as successful as the ones we have now and I am so excited to see them expand!
