N-Teens members met in E201 on Thursday, April 18, to discuss future volunteering ideas.

“I usually go to N-Teens every week. It’s interesting to see how many different volunteer opportunities there are throughout the community,” Brianna Hoover (11) said.

One thing that the members of N-Teens are taking part in is a cell phone collection. They are collecting any old cell phones, working or not, and donating them. All of the money that is earned for each phone will be donated and proceeds will benefit the St. Jude House in Crown Point. The St. Jude House is a safe shelter for victims of domestic violence and their dependent children.

“I think that the cell phone drive is a good idea because most people have had more than one phone, and if they haven’t, their parents probably have some old phones lying around,” Hoover said.

The club is also holding a Relay for Life. Relay for Life is an event that raises much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. This event will take place on June 7 through June 8.

“Relay for life was an awesome idea. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way, so it’s good to be able to make an impact,” Hoover said.

N-Teens meet­s every Thursday after school in E201. Contact Mrs. Erin Rawls, Math, with any further questions.
