Service Project 2023

  • Students at Teen Venture are required to participate in 2 service projects a year. This year, the students decided we are doing a fund raiser for Tazewell County Animal shelter. When we called the shelter to find out what they need, and they told us, "Food for kittens and puppies". 

  • It is our mission, this Winter and Spring 2023, to raise as many donations as we can by the end of May 2023.

  • Teen Venture will be at the Richland's Winter Honey Festival Celebrations accepting donations for pottery, we have honey jars, and face painting.

  • Donations will go to buying Puppy and Kitten food for the Tazewell County Animal Shelter.
