On Jan. 27 through Feb. 6, the PTA is collecting orders for SME Love Fund’s carnation sales before school and during lunches. The flowers will be sold at $1 and are to be distributed on Friday, Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day. All proceeds will go towards East’s Love Fund.
The Love Fund is a PTA-ran organization that collects money to allow East families to pay for various necessities such as school lunches, supplies and transportation.
“We have a lot of sales so far,” PTA member Kelly Canova said. “They’ll be going out in English classes on Valentine’s Day and there’s still today’s lunch, tomorrow morning and tomorrow’s lunch to buy them.”
