Our Turn It Around youth group participated in several community events during the month of December. Neighborhood merchants and community organizations came out for Charlestown Holiday Night Out to promote local business and spread holiday cheer along a trail from one end of town to the other. Turn It Around set up shop in front of Starbucks selling holiday cards and artwork and had a great time meeting local residents who were interested in the group's mission. Turn It Around members also volunteered to take photos of kids with Santa, an event sponsored by the Mark & Michelle Gorman Scholarship Fund.
(Artwork and cards still available for purchase, please reach out to the Charlestown Coalition for more information.)
