The Black Student Alliances Freshman Project is a program that consists of freshmen who are interesting in volunteering their time to the Huntsville community. They recently have raised $335 in donations to help fund the Huntsville Community Childcare Center. Bethany Duncan, the chairman of the Freshman Project, said the money collected will go towards educational items for the childcare center.She also said the Dollar General store donated a number of toys to the childcare center. Various teachers from different schools have donated books to help supply the childcare with learning materials. All of the money raise for the child care was donated from students at Sam Houston. We went door to door at dorms on campus, and we had a donation table set up in the mall area, where students could make donations, Duncan said. We also had a number of bake sales to raise money as well. However, a great deal of the money was also generated from the members of BSA. The Freshman Project program presented a check yesterday to the childcare center and gave donations during an Easter party for thechildren. Duncan said the dedicated members have devoted a lot of time and effort into this fundraising to better serve the HuntsvilleCommunity Childcare Center. The program has set a path for incomingfreshmen to make a difference in the community, Duncan said. This has been one of our biggest projects and we hope that next year more freshman will contribute to the success of the program, and do bigger and better things.
