Teens for Healthy Youth Bag Bucks at Piggly Wiggly to Raise Funds

Teens for Healthy Youth (THY) members from Hilton Head Christian Academy, Bluffton High, and May River High bagged groceries at LCAHY Business Sector Representative, David Martin’s store, Piggly Wiggly.  The goal was to raise funds for the LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth (LCAHY) and their youth coalition, THY.  THY members shared their vision and mission statements with customers at Piggly Wiggly and asked for donations while bagging the customer’s groceries.  David Martin is a long-term champion of Teens for Healthy Youth.  THY members raised $500 for their efforts. THY plans to engage in Bagging for Bucks several times a year as part of LCAHY’s fund development efforts.

THY members talked to customers about their dedication to promoting total health and wellness through peer-to-peer education and leadership.

While THY members bagged groceries, they created awareness for projects THY engaged in throughout the year to address bullying, vaping, and teen stress to name a few.
