CHS students selling floral arrangements
Carson High School Career and Technical Education floriculture students led by agriculture teacher, Charlie Mann, are taking orders for floral arrangements created and sold to benefit local breast cancer and domestic violence charitable organizations. Orders will be accepted through October 12.
“My students came up with this idea of making arrangements that would help raise awareness of domestic violence and breast cancer,” Mann said. “I am extremely proud of them for coming up with this idea on their own because they are wanting to help others as well as bring awareness to our community.”
Mann said a percentage of proceeds from the sale will be given to the Carson Tahoe Breast Cancer Center and the Nevada Network against Domestic Violence.
“One way that you are able to raise awareness and send a message is through flowers and the color of the flowers,” Mann said. “These arrangements will reflect the pinks and purples associated with both and have a pinwheel and the breast cancer ribbon in it.”
Orders for the $25 arrangements may be placed by contacting Mann at (775) 283-1690 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Arrangement delivery will be between Oct. 19 and 22.
