PEA in ACTION!- Okanogan EA
Okanogan EA recently participated in a Relay for Life event and
distributed over 100 tubes of bubbles adorned with a creative Okanogan
EA sticker. The sticker encouraged the walkers to "Blow Cancer Away".
Also on the tube it gave more information about where the donation came
from, it said, "Donated by Okanogan Education Association from Public
Education Advocacy grant". Next year the local plans to display the WEA
logo on the giveaways also. In addition to the bubbles, the local
association gave out Frisbees, glow sticks and water bottles, all with
their local association’s logo. EVERYONE loved it! They were especially
excited to see hundreds of people making the walk with something from
Okanogan EA. As the items were passed out, the association volunteers
shared with each Relay for Life participant the donor of the goods.
Trisha Bradley, Okanogan EA President, said, “I had a blast watching all
of the bubbles and Frisbees floating around everywhere!” This is just
one story of how the a local association is using the Public Education
Association grant to impact their local community.
