Most of the community service I completed throughout the year was done through Greek Life. I was a philanthropy week representative for a fraternity, keeping them up-to-date with my chapter’s week-long event activities benefiting Special Olympics, Girls on the Run, the S. June Smith Center and the ASA Foundation. I created a Facebook page and posted for the brothers to see every day. I also went to one of their meetings to go in-depth about the week and scoring.
I volunteered at two mac and cheese dinners for my sorority, and rolled coins as well from coin wars that week. I also made dog and cat toys at a Panhel service event. I helped sell baked goods as well to raise money for Parents United to Stop Hazing (PUSH) and the Isabella Country Restoration Center.
Because of the service I have provided, others are going to have more opportunities available to them because of the increased amounts of funds.
Even though I am about to graduate, I want to continue to give back in the next community I live in. I want to stay in touch with current sisters who will be in the chapter next year and donate money when Greek Week rolls around again since I should have a job and be able to financially contribute.
