Nelson Youth centre shows the love on new tees

Nelson and District Youth Centre is selling t-shirts made at the NDYC.

The Nelson and District Youth Centre is putting on a summer fundraiser. They are selling t-shirts that are being made at the NDYC.

“The shirts say I love NDYC,” said Rhoneil Eurchuk who is spearheading this fundraiser. “Since we didn’t want to have the shirts made somewhere else, especially overseas, we made all of them here in the Youth Centre. So we have our own mini screen printing studio that was set up on a real tight budget.”

The design is printed onto American Apparel sweatshop-free unisex shirts by staff at the NDYC.

“We use a 100 watt lightbulb and a screen that I got from Cowan’s, and a squeegee from Cowan’s. Also some fabric ink, and some photo emulsion. So you just pull the ink across [the shirt]. You can do the whole set up for about $50,” said Rhoneil.

Money from this fundraiser will mainly go towards special programs put on by the NDYC, such as the mural recently painted on the Nelson Bridge.

“This is the main fundraiser for the summer, but we are hoping to have an art show fundraiser in the fall, and we are also hoping to do another skate jam in the fall.”

The shirts are available at the NDYC (608 Lake Street) for $25 and can be purchased over the phone at 250-352-5656. They come in sizes ranging from extra small to extra large, in either light blue, grey or black.
