The Gem Project Volunteers, Lourdes and Gizelle, were instrumental on informing their fellow peers about the Gem Project programs, while signing up participants for upcoming Gem Project campus marches. The Gem Project was able to generate over 85 new interests from the compiled efforts last Friday by  Lourdes and Gizelle, along with last Thursday’s Public Service Community Organization Fair. 

Thanks to our gift bag sponsors: Swing Phi Swing Social Fellowship, Inc. and Memi International for supplying gift bags for us. We were able to gift our volunteers.
