Student Service Takes Center Stage for Sociology Club

May 14, 2014

The spirit of service instilled in BW Yellow Jackets is alive and well in the Sociology Criminal Justice & Forensic Science (SCF) Club. The organization launched three successful donation projects this past semester.

The first, "Donate a Can and a Piece of Your Heart," ran in February and involved hosting a donation table in the Union where students could donate canned goods and create a valentine to accompany them. All food and valentines were donated to the Cleveland Food Bank in hopes of warming many hearts.

The spring "University Settlement School Supply Drive" focused on collecting school supplies for University Settlement's annual Back to School Fair.

Lastly, the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (ACBC) project is an ongoing fundraiser to help child burn victims. Aluminum cans are collected outside the computer lab in Malicky Center and taken to a local fire station where they are sold. The money raised is used by firefighters for summer camp tuition assistance for burned children and to purchase necessary equipment.
