Girls Inc. Teen Advocacy Board Raises Over $400 for Hope for Holyoke

Girls Inc. of the Valley’s Teen Advocacy Board (TAB) hosted a fundraising event at the end of the month to benefit Hope for Holyoke, a local organization welcoming all people in recovery from substance use and those affected by substance use.

TAB sold bracelets with inspirational quotes at the event to spread awareness and support those struggling with substance abuse. Substance abuse was their chosen cause as it affects an overwhelming amount of people in the community and there is not an abundance of resources for those impacted.

“The Teen Advocacy Board, or TAB, is a group of teens in the Pioneer Valley area who are passionate about creating change and want to give back to our community. Every year TAB picks a cause that we advocate and fundraise for,” said Lita Pierson, a current member of TAB. 

“Activism is important in order to create change and make the world a better place,” said Lita Pierson, a current member of TAB.  “We are fundraising for Hope for Holyoke. From support groups to career readiness programs and much more, Hope for Holyoke provides free and accessible resources to community members impacted by substance abuse.”
