PSA from Alessandra Cervera ’16:
I’ve got a crush on you.
If you have a crush on me too, you’ll buy me a Crush can.
Rho Epsilon Pi and Delta Kappa Epsilon are teaming up this week to bring you Crush can Valentines grams. There’s no better way to tell that special someone in your life that you think they’ve got a great personality (plus orange soda!!).
Cans cost $1 each and come with a label so you can ~*personalize*~ it to your liking (maybe a lil love note?). All proceeds will then go to the North End Action Team, right here in Middletown. If you want to find out more about their community projects, click here.
Here’s how the grams will work:
The one and only Kenny On ’15 writes in:
The North End Action Team (NEAT) mentoring program is recruiting guy mentors! The NEAT mentoring program is a program in which Wesleyan students are matched up with kids age 6 to 11 from the Middletown community to do fun things together such as go out for ice cream, do sports, watch movies, and much more. It is a program very similar to Big Brothers and Big Sisters except catered towards kids who could use a positive influence in their lives that reside in the North End of Middletown. The program is in need of guy mentors who can serve as role models!
The only requirements are that you like to spend time with kids and are regularly available for at least two hours on a weekly basis. Please feel free to contact with any questions.
Deadline: Friday, Feb. 7
