Treasurer’s Report: Dorothy Doyne N/A President’s Report: Nicole Schoenstein Nicole handed out a flyer to attendees entitled “Make a Difference in the Lives of New Jersey Families This Holiday Season.” The Phi Theta Kappa club was approved to “Adopt a Family” through Rutgers against Hunger. The handout items that are needed and those we cannot accept. We as Phi Theta Kappa Members have sponsored from their program a family of four members. A 29 yr old male, a 27 yr old female, and their two children , their 6 yr old son, and their 13 months old daughter. There will be boxes around different section of the Mays Landing Campus title example “Phi Theta Kappa have adopted a family for the holiday, please help us by donating.” Lists of items needed are stated on each box. THIS EVENT ENDS ON DECEMBER 1st. In reference to one of our activities/fundraising events, showing the “FOOD INC. FILM,” Nicole has contacted an anthropologist Professor at the Richard Stockton College New Jersey to get some help in promoting the show of the film at Richard Stockton campus. However at this point Vice President Tammy Medica made a motion and all members voted in favor to put off the showing of the film to February 2010. As it may be more feasible to host the event off campus, and this will give us more time to plan for the event. We are approved to coordinate and carry out the fundraising event to sell lollipops .The sale of the lollipops will be 50 cents each. However we are awaiting a check delivery from the SGA. Also we are approved to participate in the fundraising of an oriental customized items, further information about this fundraising will be given at the next meeting.
