The Business Students Association (Business Club) is a community service focused organization. The club members raise money through bake sales, popcorn sales, raffles and other entrepreneurial methods to give back to the local communities in Fulton and Montgomery counties. Some of the organizations that we have donated to recently include:
- Salvation Army
- Family Counseling Center
- YMCA of Fulton County and Amsterdam
- Super-storm Sandy flood victims relief
- Sacandaga Helping Hands
- The veterans memorial fund
- Warm the Children winter clothing drive
- Thanksgiving food baskets
- Holiday food and gifts to local families
In fact, the Business Club donated more than $2,200.00 during the 2013-2014 school year to various charitable organizations benefitting many individuals in our communities.
The club has sponsored bus trips to New York City, Boston, Newport R.I and Philadelphia giving club members the opportunity to travel and explore new locations.
If you are looking for an opportunity to become involved on campus, make new friends, participate in community service and have fun, contact Mark Swain (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Charlene Dybas (email@example.com)co-advisors to learn how you can join our group.
