Thomas Jefferson High School Best Buddies Club promotes inclusion pledge
On March 4, 2020, the Thomas Jefferson High School Best Buddies Club participated in Inclusion Day, the global movement to build a more inclusive world for people with intellectual disabilities and make Inclusion the norm!
Best Buddies Club members encouraged all TJHS students and staff to donate $1 to their cause and sign their Inclusion pledge to show support for ALL students. A special video created by club members was shown to the entire high school to spread awareness of Inclusion Day and their pledge-signing efforts.
TJHS Best Buddies collected over 100 pledge signatures and handed out Inclusion bracelets that they designed to everyone who participated. A dinner fundraiser was held that evening at Texas Road House in Pleasant Hills, PA.
At the end of the day, Best Buddies collected over $400 to support future club activities and events which promote Inclusion.
