The Argyle High School UNICEF club recently received recognition from the Denton County Friends of the Family and were awarded a resolution from State Representative Tan Parker for the philanthropy work they have done.
Former AHS UNICEF president Emiliana Lopez, an active member of the University of North Texas UNICEF club, is working with the Argyle UNICEF club to kick off the annual Tap Project.
The clubs will be hosting several fundraisers in March to bring attention to the thousands of children around the world who will die from a lack of clean drinking water.
The AHS UNICEF club has recently completed four videos that were entered into the Movies 4 Development (M4D) contest to create a 60-second public service announcement that reflects on one of the group’s millennium goals.
Five video teams from around the country will be chosen to go to New York and work with UNICEF to create national campaigns.
