Club News - Community Service Halloween Party
The motto of the Henry Ford Community Service Club is “Making a Difference on the Campus and in the Community”. The club held a successful Halloween bake sale and “Cans for Treats” Halloween Party. The bake sale helped offset some of the costs of the party and taught members about money management and leadership. The party was a way to give back to the community and provide a fun and safe event for children. In lieu of admission, the club collected canned goods for the Angels Food Bank in Taylor, MI.
The party was a huge success because children enjoyed the games and craft stations provided by Community Service Club members, Phi Theta Kappa, the Student Environmental Association and other volunteers. Guests enjoyed snacks, candy, a costume contest, music and dancing. Some of the participants were children from foster care agencies and a group home. The judges of the costume contest had to make difficult choices because there were a plethora of adorable costumes. The winners of the contest received a medal and a Toys R Us gift card. The lucky winners included Amayah Featherston, age 10, Yousef Fadel, age 8, and Katherine Dodge, age 4. Another winner was the Angels Food Bank, the recipient of 8 boxes of food to help families in need. The Community Service Club is a strong advocate of serving the community and campus. Additional projects include the Candlelight Vigil for Homeless Awareness Week, collections for Covenant House and Beaumont Children’s Hospital, and helping other clubs with their projects and programs.
