Welcome to our blog: Sweatshirts to Scrubs

Throughout our journey in creating Sweatshirts to Scrubs, we have grown so much, and have gained skills we would not have otherwise had the chance to cultivate. As high school students, many of the tasks we completed in order to make this nonprofit a success were beyond the scope of anything we had done in the past (i.e. networking with local businesses in the community to secure locations/broaden our outreach, filing documents with the state and the IRS to become an official company and be granted 501(c)(3) status, or writing press releases for media who wanted to cover our story with Sweatshirts to Scrubs). With each consecutive experience, we learned, and part of our mission is to share our knowledge with others. We knew that many of the skills we learned along the way were just as important to share as our knowledge in science and medicine, so this blog is our way of sharing these experiences with the world. In the following entries, you will be able to get a glimpse into what it was like to create this organization as we both offer our unique perspectives in our own posts.

    August 13, 2019 by

    Ahhhhh. FINALLY, we can breathe a huge sigh of relief. To fully share this story, we must travel all the way back to June 2019. Two months ago, I went to my sister and asked if we could officially become a 501(c)(3) organization. She agreed, and together, we naively did a Google search to see… Read more
