FSCJ’s AnthroSocial Club will be holding a bake sale on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The club plans on setting up outside of the South Campus cafeteria. Food available will include cookies, cupcakes, and pumpkin bars. The bake sale is set to have a Dia de Muertos theme in honor of the Mexican holiday celebrated from October 31st-November 2nd.
The AnthroSocial club, presided over by Anthropology professor Brad Biglow, plans to donate a percentage of their profits to local charity Dreams Come True. The club chose to donate to Dream Come True after taking a poll consisting of votes from club members. Founded by Tom McGehee and his wife Delia, the 501 non-profit organizations makes the dreams of children living with terminal and life-limiting illness come true.
FSCJ student Jeremy Hobbs, and former child participant in the Dreams Come True program received a “second Christmas” from the organization with his main gift being a plethora of video games.
“They asked me what I wanted, and at that age I had no desire to travel, and I wanted something I could use all the time. It turns out that video gaming helps hand-eye coordination which is definitely an issue with my Spinal Muscular Atrophy”, Hobbs said.
The AnthroSocial club plans to donate the other portion of their profits back to the college’s Anthropology department.
“Our funds from the bake sale will be put toward bettering the Anthropology department for not only our class, but future Anthropology students as well. Our goal is to raise enough money to gain new equipment and resources to help fellow students in their learning experiences at FSCJ”, said AntrhoSocial club member Morgan Elliott.
Student club leader, Amanda Sumner references a quotation attributed to Margaret Mead when asked what motivated her to restart and run the club this school year:
