Aggie Advocates for Disability are ready to make a difference

September 18, 2012 by cpehrson

If you want to be involved in something worthwhile during your college years, Aggie Advocates for Disability is the club for you.  Aggie Advocates was created to give students a way to help improve the lives of people with disabilities through advocating for them  by educating the general public and professionals, raising funds for schools, families, and organizations, and by providing services.

Club members have many activities planned throughout the year to help out in some of the programs on campus that provide services to children and adults with disabilities.

Here are just a few of their upcoming events:

  • Tuesday Sept. 18th at 7:00pm – OPENING SOCIAL! On the quad (near Old Main) we will be having pizza & drinks, playing games, and providing information about the club. Come meet some friends, eat some delicious food, and enjoy yourself! Please come!
  • Monday Sept. 24th from 6:00-8:00pm – Street Painting for Homecoming week! It will be on Aggie Bull-evard and we will let you know exactly where we’ll meet when we are assigned a spot. We’ll be painting something on the road to notify students about our club as they stroll along the street. So, wake up your creative juices and bring some fun ideas for our club to paint. It’ll be a grand time to be with friends and to build up your Aggie spirit!
  • In October we will be helping the Up to 3 program with the Pumpkin Walk.  They want to have a booth or section, so they will need some help painting the pumpkins, setting up the scene and tearing it down. This would qualify for one of the activities you need to do for the CPD. The pumpkin walk is October 18th to the 23rd so set up and tear down will be the 17th and 24th. We’ll get more information later on and make sure to send it your way.
As the semester continues on, there will be more service opportunities and events.  You can follow them on
facebook to find out about each event.
