Organized and implemented many service opportunities for members. As a group, we facilitated 2 bake sales for Cradled by Love, Hope, and Healing, a local organization that helps parents cope with sudden infant/child loss and is sponsored by a Child and Family Studies professor here at Baylor University. We raised over $100 each semester; enough to sponsor a family. We also had multiple food drives for Caritas, a local, well-known food pantry in Waco.

For fundraising, we had our annual Taco Dinner where we invited students and faculty on campus to enjoy delicious homemade tacos and sides for the low price of $5. These funds will be used to send some of our officers to the National Meeting.

3. Tentative plans for next year

Maintaining a good relationship with the local organizations such as Caritas and Cradled.
Hosting events that incorporate all majors and other respective organizations within the department to build on those relationships as well as recruit new members.
Develop more memorable advertising techniques in order to recruit more members.
Reach out to other local organizations in Waco to provide service.
