Members of the Greenwich High School YNET club set up outside the Senior Center on Saturday to spread their message “Love Shouldn’t Hurt” in person, on frisbees, rubber wrist bands and pens. In addition, the girls were giving out  water bottles imprinted with the slogan “Say no to teen dating violence,” donated by the Greenwich Police Department.

Volunteering their Saturday morning were GHS senior Marley MacDougall, freshman Lily McKenna, junior Grace DiChristina, junior Julia Marache, junior Isabelle Madoff and junior Lauren Mahr. The girls were also accepting donations which would go to further prevention of teen dating violence.

According to MacDougall, who has been involved with the club for all for years at GHS, “We’re a club at GHS students who work with YWCA domestic abuse services to prevent teen dating violence in Greenwich and beyond.”

The street outreach was part of the club’s public awareness campaign. More on YNET and teen dating violence.
