The Forgotten Stories club held a fundraiser on Friday, April 28 in Hooper Lobby, selling popcorn for $2 and soda for $1. All proceeds were combined with the club’s previous movie night fundraiser and donated to aid Syrian refugees, utilizing the Mercy-USA organization.

The club raised $273.55 altogether, which will be directly donated to Mercy-USA.

“This fundraiser was an outstanding success. This, along with the movie night, raised more money that I could have ever imagined. This success really gives me hope for the upcoming year. I believe Forgotten Stories can become much bigger and more successful with the help of our MSMS family. I truly hope that we are making a difference in the lives of those who are suffering, with these fundraisers,” Abu-Salah, junior and president, said.

The club plans to hold more fundraisers in the future while also generating awareness in the MSMS community.

“The goal of Forgotten Stories is to to bring awareness as well as to learn even more about countless tragedies that are affecting our community, country and world. In this club, our main goal will be awareness and fundraising. All we want to do is contribute a little to these seemingly endless problems and introduce people to conflicts that just don’t seem to get the recognition and attention from the media,” Abu-Salah said.

Abu-Salah hopes to hold events in the future such as “documentaries and guest speakers to hopefully give students a new look into these tragedies.”

The purpose of these events is to educate the MSMS community by “allowing students to truly understand the impact of these tragedies and spur them to pursue more action to aid these ailing people,” Abu-Salah added.

Dr. Kayla Hester is the club’s sponsor, and the club expects to hold officer elections soon for next year.
