Senior School GSA Raises $552 for Point of Pride
GSA t shirt design

In spring 2021, junior Braden Crow and members of the Shady Side Academy Senior School Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) raised $552 through a T-shirt sale and bake sale for Point of Pride, a volunteer-run nonprofit that works to benefit trans people in need through gender-affirming support programs that empower them to live more authentically.

GSA members designed and printed T-shirts featuring the GSA logo using the in-house equipment in the Senior School's Glimcher Tech & Design Hub, which enabled the club to donate 90% of each T-shirt sale to Point of Pride, rather than 60% if they had printed the shirts through an external vendor. The club raised an additional $192 by hosting a bake sale in addition to the T-shirt sale.

Congratulations to Braden and the GSA, and thank you to all of the SSA community members who purchased T-shirts!
