Welcome back to another great year of Communiteens!!! This will be our third full year of such an amazing organization and I know that it will be as successful as the other 2! I am super excited to continue to recruit, plan events, and spread the word on the awesome things we are doing to change our respective communities!
Cooper City Chapter, run by Jonathan, donated several sneakers to gotsneakers? and raised 1,000 dollars!!! That 1,000 dollars will go straight to ICareICure which helps children with cancer! I am so proud to see this chapter making a huge impact!
In addition, the AHS chapter, run by me, will be hosting a stuffed animal drive through Jamie Cohen, who is the SAFE (Stuffed Animals for Emergencies) chapter president, my sister, and an event coordinator in the club! I cannot wait to see how successful it is at the end of the Quarter!!!
If you are interested in joining Communiteens, please reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the website and we can talk about getting your chapter started!!!
Over the past month, we have had several chapters across the United States complete events to help benefit their community! In addition, Communiteens and I have won awards!
Communiteens - Reno volunteered at Reno Earth Day, an event dedicated to bringing awareness of Earth Day and celebrate the Earth. They then worked at the Boys and Girls Nite Out, which helps connect people from across the Nevada Community to play games and win prizes. Lastely, they participated in sorting food at a local food bank. So much done in so little time and I am happy to see them make an impact on such a diverse group of people!!
Communiteens - Parkland went to the Humane Society in Broward County to deliver collected items to the animals. Over the course of a couple of weeks, they collected items such as paper towels, wipes, Puperoni treats, and a lot of dog toys!! They went on a tour of the facility and played with puppies and kittens. "It was truly a great and worthwhile experience!!" said Rebecca, the co-chapter president of the chapter
Communiteens - South Carolina did 2 Community service projects: they helped a lacrosse tournament recently and colleceted dry noodles for a school program called Echo.
I am so happy to see all of our chapters continuing their impact on the community! I know that your events are making big changes in your respective communities. Lets keep the momentum going for next year!!!
As this school year comes to a close, I would like to thank all of my chapters, old and new, for creating such successful events! I am so happy to see Communiteens grow over such a short period of time. We have, over the past school year, worked with organizations across the country and impacted thousands of lives. I know that, with our growing impact, we will continue to make waves in the communities around us.
Communiteens - AHS is hosting its last meeting of the school year tomorrow. We will be inviting new officers to the team. Instead of having Event Coordinators which helped design events for the chapter to participate in, we will also have a secretary, which will be in charge of attendance and other important aspects of managing the club.
Cannot wait to see the impact we make next year!!
This month was very successful for Communiteens!!!
The Davie Chapter, run by Ally Einbinder, held an event this month! They held our first ever fundraiser to support Marjory Stoneman Douglas. At Blaze Pizza, approximately $350 were raised to support those in our community who need it the most. Thank you to Ally for leading such an amazing event and I know that your future events will be just as impactful!
Brooke and the Weston Chapter made over 100 medals for WeFinishTogether. They have made over 500 medals this year so far and I am so happy to have seen them make so many in such a small amount of time!
Communiteens - AHS, run by me, teamed up with Best Buddies to participate in the Best Buddies Walk. The event was extremely fun, full of music and food. We were able to befriend people with disabilities, which hopefully changed the views of the disabled in the participant's eyes. They even gave out the WeFinishTogether medals from the Weston Chapter!
Thank you everyone for such a successful month and I cannot wait to see the same impact next month!!
I would first like to say that Communiteens is devastated by the tragedy that has occurred in Parkland last week. We are a strong group that are always looking to help our community. We would really like to be there for our friends at MSD during this terrible time. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any suggestions regarding needs in our community. The Communiteens - AHS Chapter is working to help those who were affected by the Stoneman Douglas tragedy this past week. We will be collecting school supplies to help the teachers and students recover from the lack of access to classrooms. #msdstrong
The Cooper City Chapter, run by Jonathan Greenip, participated in the Annual ICareICure run. There were approximately 22 members who participated under the Communiteens team and finished the race. All the proceeds went to raise awareness for childhood cancer research.
The Reno Chapter has worked with me to create an article for a local newspaper. The article can be found on the "Featured In..." page.
Glad to see so much progress in the past month and I cannot wait to see even more progress within the next few months!
This year has been off to a great start! During this past month, we have done several events AND introduced a New Chapter!
The Communiteens AHS Chapter has completed their first event. The Event Coordinator designed an event to collect Cans of Food over the course of 2-4 weeks. After weighing all the cans, we have collected 130 lbs of food for Feeding South Florida. These cans will go directly to those who live every day not knowing where their next meal will come from. The club/chapter is extremely happy to make a difference in their community.
Communiteens AHS is teaming with Best Buddies for a Best Buddies Walk. It will be taking place in Miami on March 17 from 8-12am. If you are interested in attending this event (it is free) feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, Communiteens AHS is hosting another drive for the Salvation Army. They will be collecting Clothing, Toiletries, and many other items that are needed by those who are less unfortunate. This event will take place over the course of the next few weeks.
Outside of Communiteens AHS news, the Communiteens - Reno, Nevada Chapter has been created! It is run by 2 Co-Presidents, Alexa and Chloe. They have already started working on their first event! I am so excited to see the impact they are going to create over the next few years!
In addition, Communiteens - Cooper City Chapter is participating in a walk! The ICareICure Walk is occurring at 8am on February 11th to help support children with cancer. If you want to find out more information, feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Cannot wait to see the progress and success of all the chapters, new and old!
Congratulations to Tyler on an amazing event in November! They collected over 2500 pairs of shoes over the past few months! After the collection, his friends, chapter members, and lacrosse teammates, packed the shoes and donated the shoes to Funds2orgs, a national organization. I am so proud to see such a major impact on the South Carolina Community and cannot wait for more projects in the near future!
Communiteens - Parkland completed an event recently!! On November 13th, the Parkland Chapter participated in the Harvest Drive, where they sorted and organized various canned goods and drinks. They were brought to the West-Glades Middle School, where the gym was filled with goods donated from around South Florida. Congrats to Molly and Rebecca Marks on another successful event!
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!
