"Think about when you were a kid going to school, going on field trips. That was pretty influential. Imagine never going on a field trip." - SUZANNAH HOBLEY, PUMPKIN SMASH CHAIR
This event will allow the club to provide neighborhoods schools with everything from robotics and Lego clubs, graphing calculators to art supplies and drum-line equipment. "We try to do projects that will influence the most amount of kids," says Suzannah Hobley, Pumpkin Smash chair. "We also provide transportation for field trips. There's no money in the school budget for that. Think about when you were a kid going to school, going on field trips. That was pretty influential. Imagine never going on a field trip. It blows my mind."
