In an effort to help the community and raise awareness of charitable causes, Cherry Hill East’s East In Action Club, or EIA, led by the President, Shayna Golkow, and the vice presidents, Christine Cirillo and Chelsea Myers, is not a typical community service club. After grabbing some snacks and settling into their seats, the group got right down to business.In the mission statement of the EIA Club, it states, “Our goal is to help the community through hands-on volunteering and raising money and awareness for various charitable causes.”
Every month, the club holds a meeting to discuss and plan for future events. During the 2007-2008 school year, EIA’s major event was a legislative breakfast with the Alzheimer’s Association. At the breakfast, over eighty people attended and the group raised $1020 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
This upcoming year, East In Action is looking forward to raising more money for charity as well as participating in various community service activities.
