Teen Activists Need Your Support

We like hearing about local teens who aren't so focused on the culture of me. Two Montclair High students, Alexandra Volcy-de Nes and Zachary Herring, have been working for months to organize a Silent Auction Benefit to raise money and awareness for Guatemala-based children's charity, Safe Passage.

The fundraiser will take place on Friday, March 9, 7-10 pm, at St John's Episcopal Church, 55 Montclair Ave, Montclair. The enterprising teens plan to sell light food and drinks, and raffle off cool prizes. They've scored art prints from NY and Montclair artists, restaurant certificates, 4 NJ Nets tickets, a Bobbi Brown makeup basket and donations from local merchants for the silent auction. $5.00 donation at the door.

Alexandra's dad has been a volunteer at Safe Passage, which inspired this good will project. Safe Passage offers educational and health services for 550 impoverished children living with their families on the periphery of Guatemala City's garbage dump. An Oscar nominated documentary, Recylced Life tells the story of the people Alex and Zachary want to help. The organization was founded by former Montclair resident Hanley Denning, who was killed in a car accident on January 18, 2007. To make a donation, or for more information, call Alexandra at 973-229-7373
