BSL holds event for VSU community

 Black Student League indeed answered to the call for action as they held “Scream Fest” last Saturday, Oct. 24, collecting donations from students in efforts to contribute to VSU and the Valdosta community.
 Students joined BSL’s cause by donating while enjoying free food, music and activities that lasted from 7 p.m. to midnight.
Students were given the chance to exchange donations for tickets to participate in games and eat free food from vendors.
 Students were also given community service opportunities by serving as volunteers for the event.
 According to BSL President Loren Bass, they collected 494 food items, 214 clothing items and 213 school supplies during the event.
 “The food is going to be donated to different departments on campus and the clothes are going to a shelter,” Kim Tucker, BSL secretary, said.
 While enjoying the festivities, some students took a moment to share their thoughts about why they thought this event was beneficial.
 “I think it’s always nice when organizations help out the campus,” Monique Andrews, mass media junior, said. “We take so much out, we need to put in.”
 “It’s a good event because it is fun and a way to help out the community,” Jasmine Martin, nursing sophomore, said.
BSL entertained students, as well as helped out VSU and the community, and was the first to answer to the Spectator’s editorial campaign. �
 “We are very excited our goal was accomplished and we hope to make this an annual event,” Loren Bass, BSL President, said. “We have heard nothing but good reviews from our peers and prize ourselves for being trendsetters.”
 The Spectator will continue to cover organizations that contribute to helping out VSU’s campus.
