The Student Social Work Association (SSWA) raised $300 from their bake sale on Sunday that helped raise money for the SSWA Pinning Ceremony and ASU seniors within the organization.

The SSWA provides social services for those who do not have enough money or for those who are not being cared for.

However, this particular event allowed customers to donate money in front of Best Buy for baked goods to help raise money for upcoming ASU graduates.

"The purpose of this organization is to help people," sophomore member Alizae White said. "To get involved with the community and give back to those who are in need."

The seniors said they are appreciative for what this association does to keep the Ram Fam spirit alive, especially if it is for the students.

The workers of the organization said they enjoyed the time baking and the reward of happy customers.

Some members reported they are pleased that people encourage their optimistic behavior and good deeds in society.

"I have always been passionate about helping others," senior Mezly Lopez said. "It is a great experience to be involved with the community."

Members discussed why they got involved with the program.

"It is an amazing organization," White said. "It dedicates us to help others who need attention and correction in their lives."

"I enjoy the volunteer time," junior Caroline Zamudio said. "I like to surround myself with optimistic people and serve a positive example for young kids and adults."

The members baked desserts such as brownies and Halloween cookies for the event.

This occasion went on for three hours and raised almost $300 with approximately a dozen goods still left.

The SSWA members said they don’t just give back to the school; sometimes, simple volunteer work brings the leaders joy to see others smile.

"I am passionate in what I do," senior Zara Hagle said. "I want to always give back to the community because I enjoy seeing the faces of happy individuals."

The association will be at the YMCA for a trunk-or-treat in the upcoming week with activities and prizes for kids.
