Campus Organizations Human Services Club
"Each year our club adopts‟ a different agency focusing on needs within the community. Our two major annual events are the Ton in Ten which is held in November and the Chili Challenge that is held in March. The Ton in Ten provides Peanut Butter and Jelly to [organizations] in need of food, and we are always looking for places to donate the food to. The Human Services Club is a service based club; the events we become involved in are in some way a benefit to the community." The choices of which organizations the Human Services Club helps are strongly influenced by the officers of the club, but "we are always looking into new ways to be involved… within UAA and the community" (Danielle Dixon).
