For people who are running low on money, have no ideas yet for Valentine gifts and are stressing about that cute little holiday and wondering whether or not to get anything at all, the Criminal Justice Association is here to help.
The CJA will be selling Valentine’s Day gifts and tokens in the Student Center Plaza until Feb. 15 from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
They will be selling a candy-filled coffee mug for $7, a bear with a rose for $5 and suckers with a personalized note for 50¢. They will also decorate your door for $10.
In addition, for $20, the CJA has a package that includes a decorated door, abear with a rose and a coffee mug with candy.
“We decided on selling Valentines because it’s close to Valentine’s Day, and we wanted to get a typical holiday to get students involved,” sophomore Clay Brown said.
The fundraiser will be helping raise money toward what the organization will do during the semester, including social events (such as bowling) and guest speakers coming to speak from different branches of the justice system.
In the past the CJA has had speakers such as a professor on campus who spoke before he got involved with the CJA, and an investigator for the Nacogdoches Police Department.
“This semester, we will also be going to Skyview in Rusk, which is a prison for the criminally insane,” junior Candance Anderson, the secretary of the organization, said.
In addition, they will also be planning a camping trip to Jasper, Anderson said.
Starting Feb. 5, CJA meetings will be held every other Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Room 179 in the Ferguson Building. All majors are welcome.
“We would just like for everyone to come out and get involved with us,” Brown said.
