Positive Impact Club: Spreading Awareness with Pizza
Members of Irvington Middle School’s Positive Impact Club recently spread awareness about keeping young people in their community safe, healthy and free of alcohol and drugs with the help of two local businesses.
To convey their message, the students placed more than 400 stickers, reading in part “While underage drinking and drug use is no one’s fault, prevention is everyone’s responsibility,” on pizza boxes at Tony's Pizzeria in Irvington and Capri Pizza & Pasta in Tarrytown.
“The project took place last week in anticipation of the increased number of pizzas that were expected to be purchased for the Super Bowl,” said Jennifer Nunziato, advisor of the Positive Impact Club and student assistance counselor. “This was a great example of coordination in our District and community.”
The Irvington Recreation Department provided transportation to both businesses with Nunziato chaperoning the students. Irvington About Safe Kids, a coalition established through a grant awarded to the Village of Irvington and Community Advisory Board, sponsored and provided the stickers.
“Dr. Kristopher Harrison surprised the students at Capri Pizza and purchased a pizza to congratulate them on their hard work,” Nunziato said. “The owner of Tony's Pizzeria also provided the students with pizza, drinks and snacks as a token of his support for the project.”
The Irvington Middle School Positive Impact Club is a leadership club that focuses on promoting healthy decision-making and spreading messages of prevention and awareness across the school and local community.
