Because We Can

Because We Can is the fastest growing student-run organization at ATU. BWC offers students various ways to get involved through volunteering and large-scale community service projects. Some of their biggest projects include the Green and Gold Cupboard which helps combat food insecurity for members of the Tech family. In order to facilitate this mission, BWC began the Campus Kitchens Project (which has collected over twenty tons of food) and continues to support local pantries. Other projects include the DCFS Toy Drive, Hygiene Drive for Russellville School District, Video Game Social, Neighbor’s Table (as shown to the right), and many more.
