Ethics in Action’s First Projects for Fall Semester.


The Ethics in Action Club has come up with two ideas so far for projects to help in the community. The first is to make sandwiches for people in homeless and battered women shelters, and the second is to use collection boxes to collect canned food and hygiene items for people in need. In addition, the Ethics in Action Club has proposed two contests open to students on the Gibbs campus.

In addition to the sandwiches, the Ethics in Action Club was also hoping to use what they collect from the boxes that are going to be set out around the Gibbs campus and stores, such as Wal-Mart, to create “care packages” for people in need so that they will have the basic essentials for living (toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.). The Ethics in Action Club hopes to do this at least once a month, and in the winter months they are planning to collect warm clothes for the homeless and serve soup instead of sandwiches.

The two contests that have been proposed are open to all current students at the Gibbs campus. The first contest is a writing contest. To enter, write an essay with a minimum of five hundred words, and a maximum of two thousand words, answering this question in your own words:

“If You Could Change One Thing in the World, What Would It Be?”

The second contest is an art contest. The contestant must create an original logo for the Ethics in Action Club. You can use any art form you want (free-hand sketch, painting, digital art, etc.) as long as it is not obscene in any way. Only one entry in each contest is allowed per person, and on your creation you must put your name, contact information, and student ID number.

I am sorry to say I cannot release what the prizes are until the contest is approved by the Student Government Association (SGA), so hopefully these projects will be approved soon. Until then, keep checking for updates. You can see club updates here on The Sandbox News, or on the Ethics in Action Club’s Facebook page at: Feel free to send a message the page for more information about the club.
