Beginning on Sept. 10, the Latino Student Business Association will be hosting LSBA Week, a series of events that consist of community service and social gatherings where organization members participate and give back to the community. One of the events they’re most excited about is a donation drive called “Backpacks for Kids.”
“The ‘Backpack for Kids’ event goes back to LSBA week,” according to Uzi Rios, LSBA president. “We want to build up spirit and one way we want to that is to give back. We’re collecting backpacks, school supplies, and anything for low-income students that [we] will be donating to the Boys and Girls Club of Wilmington.”
LSBA aims to not only build spirit within their own organization, but CSUDH as a whole. They will be accepting donations from the Dominguez Hills’ community throughout the year, as mentioned by Rios. This is the second annual “Backpacks for Kids” and LSBA hopes to continue the tradition for years to come.
LSBA member Gilberto Alcantar said this event also acts as a way for their members to connect with each other by giving back to the close-by community of Wilmington.
“We’re getting corporate sponsors to come in and donate supplies,” Nicholas Hidalgo, vice president of LSBA said. “It provides a visual aid so people can see what we are doing. We can say that we’re having a donation drive but if we don’t have a visual then people won’t connect and understand what we are trying to do.”
LSBA Week is an opportunity for members of this organization to get more involved and make a difference. It will conclude with the Compton Initiative, where LSBA will continue their service efforts by helping restore and beautify a designated area in Compton.
