February 24 Programs

Empowering Youth Through Self-Love

February’s here, and it’s all about showing some love to the most important person in your life: yourself! We’re super excited to dive into the theme of Self-Love this month. We believe that the journey to understanding and cherishing oneself is both transformative and necessary. And we’ve got some awesome activities lined up to help you do just that.

Thank You Citrus and Cane

We also want to show some love to our long-standing partner and friend, Citrus & Cane, a business born out of the 2020 pandemic’s necessity. Initially crafting hand-sewn face masks and scented hand sanitizers when PPE was scarce, Citrus & Cane skillfully pivoted from essential supplies to launching their now-beloved scented candles.

Beyond their innovative products, Citrus & Cane’s dedication to giving back, particularly through collaborations and donations, including a committed partnership with Prism United, underscores their impact. Their approach to charitable giving, facilitated by seamless integration with their sales, not only exemplifies their generosity but also their innovative spirit. Learn more about their story on their website www.citruscane.com.
