BYU club offers a chance for students to reach out to the world’s poor


    By Brooke Walker

    A benefit dance sponsored by BYU Service Club Global Outreach will be held Saturday evening in the Wilkinson Center Terrace Court.

    Global Outreach is a club that allows BYU students to work together to meet the needs of underprivileged children both locally and internationally. The club provides members with the opportunity to participate in interactive service and aid less developed countries. Global Outreach donates supplies to orphanages and city governments, educates individuals on personal hygiene and shares motivational messages of hope and love. This year the club is planning to travel to Africa and Argentina.

    The dance begins at 8 p.m. and will feature popular local bands such as Blue Light Special, James Brown Experience and Leprechauns Wailing Out. Admission will be $3 at the door, but tickets can be purchased in advance for only $2 at the Wilkinson Information Center. All proceeds will go to Global Outreach.

    Vice president Kimberly Campbell encourages everyone to come out for this great cause.

    “Knowing the supplies we are getting are going to kids who really need them gives you such a great feeling,” Campbell said. “It is great to know that you are improving their future and giving them a better life, while having fun at the same time.”

    Global Outreach will also be selling numerous food items that have been donated by local bakeries at various locations around campus Wednesday through Friday.
