Seneca Valley Raider Crate
This week's episode features a student run business from Seneca Valley High School called the "Raider Crate". We're joined by two of the students who are apart of this unique company, Luke Simpson & Zach Garcia.
Learn all about what the Raider crate is, how they came up with the idea, how many crates they've made so far and the highs & lows that came with starting a business during the pandemic.
Each crate is $15.00 and the students are currently working on a box with another Seneca Valley organization called SHOUT. The following has been taken from the Raider Crate website (https://www.raidercrate.org/) :
We at Raider Crate have teamed up with SHOUT for the month of April to shed light on the committee's dedication to educating and advocating for diverse and minority groups. SHOUT devotes their time towards creating educational content about diversity on their TikTok and Instagram platforms, working to incorporate diversity related topics into SV's curriculum and pioneering events highlighting diversity around the school. Our SHOUT chapter hopes to inspire young minds to spread kindness and SHOUT for diversity, inclusion, social justice, love, and equality!
The group is also working on a Graduation crate that creates a unique experience for all 597 seniors. This crate is $20.00 per box and is open to the community to purchase/sponsor a box for a student. The public can send personalized messages for the student to read when they get their box at graduation. There are over 200 Graduation Crates already purchased and the students at Raider Crate are working hard to get businesses to help sponsor boxes or put items in each box. If you'd like to help by sponsoring a box or your company would like to put an item in the box for all 597 students, log on to: https://www.raidercrate.org/shop
We would like to thank Luke and Zach for appearing on the show and wish the best of luck to all of the students at Raider Crate!
