Interact is a service club featured at YEC to students and is sponsored by Mrs. Patricia Sarabia. This club gives you different opportunities to volunteer and help your community. For the first fundraiser, the club raised money for children in India to buy books to better their educational needs. This fundraiser raised money at the local Yadkinville Harvest Festival. For the second major fundraiser, the club raised money to help the local pregnancy center that needed baby items. They raised the money for this fundraiser at YEC during lunches. In November, the club gave the students involved an opportunity to volunteer at the Boonville Elementary Fall Festival. During the festival, they helped out with trick or treating in the school halls and helped the staff of Boonville Elementary monitor and operate the games. The club also helped out with the Red Cross blood drive twice. During this drive, volunteers would help the donors check in and out of the station, helped the donors to their car, and helped student donors return to the classroom. The Interact club is continuing to impact the community every day.
