Lines for fried Oreos resembled lines at the carnival, during a bake sale Friday held by the campus chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

Located in the Donaghey Student Center foyer, the bake sale is part of a week-long event commemorating the chapters 40th year on campus.

Although it’s meant as a celebration, Chapter President Ivy Turner, said they’re an “action-orientated organization” and events such as a bake sale go a long way towards the goal of service to the community.

“It will help with paying for things such as community service projects or donations,” Turner said. “It will also help with things such as toy drives.”

Turner said the sorority recently handed out toys at Little Rock’s Children’s Hospital and are currently accepting toys for a future give-away.

While most people think of a celebration as music and dancing, for the Zeta Phi Beta’s, nothing says celebration like giving back to the community.
