Love Your Melon, a club introduced the the Elmira College campus this past fall, has recently gained Senate recognition on campus. The club, which began with college students, has spread throughout the United States and is now formally recognized at Elmira College.

LYM sells clothing and apparel, and pushes to sell beanies. For each item sold, 50% of the net proceeds are donated to pediatric cancer research. There is a wide array of items that are sold, including beanies, shirts, cup cozies, and lanyards.

The club is continually working to reach its goal for the sale of beanies and other items to earn points for their EC team. As the team earns points, they gradually earn apparel, kits, and events. These events include club participation in selling items, hosting events, and even meeting with children benefiting from the donations. The club is continually looking for active members willing to help sell items and raise points for the club, thus giving them more opportunities to donate to pediatric cancer research and make a difference in the children’s lives.

If you are interested in joining Love Your Melon and finding a cure for cancer, contact Katie Slaver ‘17. Many of the members will be graduating this year, so there will be plenty of leadership positions available for next year as well! They meet biweekly on Monday nights at 9:30pm in the Gannett-Tripp Library lecture hall.
