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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
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.
