The AU base of the Community Supported Agriculture program has shown a drop in membership this year from last year’s total of 16 participants.
Last December, Colin Crane went to Nicaragua with his family and came back with the beginnings of what would become a successful service group: the Pulsera Project. The Pulsera Project is a program that buys handmade bracelets — or “pulseras” in Spanish — from children in Nicaragua and sells them in the United States. The profit is then donated back to programs in underdeveloped countries. Crane, a junior in the School of Communication, and his family spent a week with the children of Los Quinchos, an orphanage in Nicaragua. They were the only visitors the kids had in a whole year. “They were so poor, but they were so happy,” Crane said.
