In this day and age, having an environment club is critical to school life. At AHS, the Green Atoms have been the go-to environmental club for years. The club is great for all things community service, providing students with easy and interesting opportunities.
“We want to raise awareness about environmental issues and build a strong sense of community in the school.” Green Atoms board member Tomas Lineras said.
However, the Green Atoms aren’t all about the weekly recycling on Wednesdays and other environmental projects in the area.
Recently, the club has teamed up with the White House Historical Society and has been raising money through the purchase of the 2019 official White House ornament.
This year’s ornament honors President Dwight D. Eisenhower and symbolizes his commitment to innovation.
The ornament is American made as well, coming from a veteran-founded business in Rhode Island.
Purchased ornaments are expected to deliver between Dec. 9 and 13. Payment of the ornament is due when purchased.
All proceeds from ornament purchases will go to the Green Atom’s sustainable land-scaping efforts.
In addition, volunteers who work to sell the ornament will receive three to four hours every day they work.
“This opportunity is great for those who want hours and great for funding of our club,” Lineras said.
The White House Historical Society releases an official Christmas ornament every year. However, this is the first time that the WHHS has collaborated with the Green Atoms.
