EINY – IT GETS BETTER PROJECT

Update: March 2, 2018

As you may know, the Community Service Club planned a Carnations Sale to celebrate Valentines Day.

Students and staff had the opportunity of buying carnations and addressing them to their peers or colleagues, to wish them a happy Valentine’s Day. The project was a huge success, and it raised over $1000 for the It Gets Better Project! 

The It Gets Better Project is a nonprofit organization with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth around the globe. As their mission states, “Growing up isn’t easy, especially when you are trying to affirm and assert your sexual orientation and/or gender identity. This project is determined to help all LGBTQ+ youth around the world.”

The Community Service Club thanks you for all of your help in making this project a big success!
