HerCampus’ Valentine’s Day Delivery Reply

Anna Wall- 1851 Staff

The members of HerCampus served some tasty treats to the Lasell College community on February 14, 2019. Eight members gathered in the Hoag dormitory kitchen and created three types of treats, Oreo wands, grilled cheese and marshmallow pops. Their goal was to make enough money to buy shirts, and their end result allowed them to do even more.

The group needed to raise $100. HerCampus spent three days tabling outside Valentine Dining Hall, taking pre-orders for the event. They accepted both cash and Venmo, which helped the fundraising immensely. The first day’s sales were not as high as they expected, but when news of the event spread to the parent’s pages of Facebook the day of the event, order growth grew more rapidly than they could imagine.

Parents had ordered so many treats to send to their children that members of the club were forced to go back to the grocery store and buy more ingredients. Members said that this was overwhelming but that it brought in the funds that made the fundraiser so successful. Parents also left messages for the club, saying they loved the idea and thought it was a great gift to send to their kids.

After the breakfast, lunch and dinner rush in the dining hall, you may head to class or go back to your dorm feeling stuffed, but have you ever thought about what happens to the leftover food?
