Members of the community are encouraged to donate to help raise money for the event. A recent donation made by Studio042 and owners Pilar and Scott Kennedy to the 2015 Project Graduation comes from the graduation lawn signs Studio042 sells through their school spirit website, Studio042 has donated 100 percent of the profits from the sales of the graduation lawn signs to Project Graduation 2015.

Studio042 was able to donate $1,120 to Montclair High School’s 2015 Project Graduation, a happy investment coming from the parents of a 2015 MHS graduate.

“We have been selling the graduation lawn signs for 25 years,” said Scott Kennedy, CEO of Studio042. “We were approached in 2012 and asked if we would donate a percentage to the Project Graduation fund. We were honored to have been asked, and rather than a small percentage we decided to donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of the Graduation lawn signs. Protecting our graduates – and particularly on that evening – is very important; Project Graduation literately saves lives. We are proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with all the other donors, supporters and volunteers who make this event a safe success every year and encourage our neighbors to join us in supporting this project.”

This is the second year Studio042 has donated in excess of $1,000 to Project Graduation. The class of 2015 Graduation Lawn Signs will be available on in the spring of 2015. Donations to Project Graduation from members of the community are welcome in any amount; there are four standard levels of giving, including $1000, $500, $250 and $100, but any amount you can give will be as welcome as it is needed.
Be sure to help out your community and donate for Project Graduation, and be sure to check back for the lawn signs in the spring!
