Pancakes and bacon made by the Animal Science Graduate Student Association.

The Animal Science Graduate Student Association held a pancake breakfast fundraiser Wednesday morning to support those affected by the recent wildfires in California. Each plate of food was $5, and 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to wildfire relief efforts. The students also held a holiday dessert bake sale to raise funds. All baked items were made and donated by Department of Animal Science faculty, staff and students.

"We found it important to help out because it's related to our field — agriculture," said association member Laine Zammit. "So many people's livelihoods were destroyed by the fires, and it's especially bad for farmers. They've lost so much."

The students raised several hundred dollars during the fundraiser and are still collecting donations.

"So many people have nothing right now, and we want to give them everything we can," said association member Callan Lichtenwalter. "We're just trying to help any way we can."
