A Few Good Men will host a pancake fundraiser Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Hillsdale Free Methodist Church.
At convocation, the organization received the Club of the Year recognition after students nominated and voted for on-campus groups. Student Federation reviewed the finalists for official selection. This GOAL program’s fundraiser is an opportunity for Hillsdale College’s campus and the surrounding community to encounter each other over breakfast for dinner and a chance to hear from CEO of Hillsdale’s Community Foundation Sharon Bisher and President of A Few Good Men junior Jacob Thackston.
“It’s an opportunity for us to raise a little money, but more importantly it’s an opportunity for the community to come together in this way,” Thackston said.
The event is free of cost with a suggested donation of $5. Everyone is welcome.
“As an organization, one of the things we pride ourselves on is that we send students out of the [Hillsdale] bubble and into the community to really do good work there and do work there that isn’t imposing itself onto the community but working with the community,” Thackston said. “A Few Good Pancakes is a really good way to show that clearly…It’s a way that we can bring a whole bunch of people from all over, from campus, from city hall, from churches, from non-profits, from Delp Hall down to Simpson, everyone can come together…This is a way in which we can show students the community that they’re living in that they never really get a good chance to interact with.”
