It has almost been two weeks since the Stoneman Douglas shooting. The UNF Social Work Club wants to help the Parkland community recover from the shocking attack, and arranged a bake sale  from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in between the Starbucks and the Thomas G. Carpenter Library on Feb. 26.

“Several of my friends are from South Florida and either went to the school or a nearby school and know people that were affected,” Jennifer Santana, UNF Social Work Club president and social work senior explained. “The Social Work Club officers have wanted to do something to support them. It was actually our volunteer coordinator, Shelly, who decided on the bake sale idea.”

All of the items in the bake sale were either donated by current members or alumni members of the club . The sale is donation based, so there is no set price for the baked goods just what can be given. The money will be donated to the GoFundMe created by the Broward Education Foundation for the victims and families of the shooting.

At the time of publishing this article, over $2.2 million has been raised. The foundation is a nonprofit, and is working with the Broward County Public School system. Students can access the GoFundMe here.
