The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, also known as FM’s Gaming Club, held a bake sale fundraiser with the aim of supporting Lexington, an agency that provides services and programs to children and adults with disabilities in Fulton and Albany Counties. “Our motivation to donate to Lexington was based on the fact that many gamers have some form of physical or mental disability, as well as learning disabilities,” said Club President Jay Chapman.

Chapman told Lexington Foundation Executive Director Wally Hart that the Club has heard many good things about Lexington and the Club members have come to appreciate the wonderful and positive impact Lexington is making in the community. “As members of this community, we value and treasure the services and support you offer to our family, friends, and neighbors. Please accept our donation as thanks for your hard work, compassion and dedication to our people,” said Chapman, as he presented a check for $140 to Hart.

Hart said of the donation, “We were thrilled to receive this gift and appreciate the work involved with raising the monies. We are so grateful to these FM students for recognizing the need for the services we provide to the community and making the connection with us to want to help.”
