With Valentine’s Day here, clubs have decided to take advantage of the season through club sales. Among these are Red Cross and Eagle Ambassadors, who are selling festive treats for students to buy.
Red Cross has been selling carnations for $1 a piece to raise money for the club’s charity activities. With the money, the club will make blankets for veterans and sandwiches for grassroots.
“A lot of people send flowers not just to significant others but also friends and teachers to show their appreciation to them, so it brings an air of community to Centennial,” says Anika Huang, a member of Red Cross.
Eagle Ambassadors has been selling candy grams for either $1 or $2 with personalized notes for the recipient. They use the money earned for events and school spirit activities to benefit Centennial as a whole.
Chris Lidard, a junior, has been active with the sales and is excited to use the money to help the school.
“Almost everything [raised] will be going back into helping students raise up school spirit,” says Lidard. “A worthwhile investment if you ask me.”
As for the candy grams, Lidard enjoys the spirit they bring to Centennial.
“I think the idea of sending some candy and a personal note really helps people connect,” says Lidard. “Even if it’s to a friend or a classmate… [it can] brighten up the atmosphere of the school.”
