In support of our community service endeavors, it was asked that members bring holiday cards for a group signing event in regards to the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign sponsored by the American Red Cross. We had 150 signed cards that will be sent out as part of the Holiday Mail for Heroes project. Way to go Cal Epsilon!

Cook Chapter- Monster Mash

Originally Posted by Bryan D. Ryder

The annual Monster Mash was held at Rutgers University on October 24, 2014. This event creates a safe place for the children of the New Brunswick community to have some Halloween fun and get some candy. Many different organizations of the Rutgers community volunteer to run a table. The brothers of the Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter ran a table with a fun Halloween-themed game the kids could play to get candy. The children were able to try to throw a plastic spider so it would stick into a spider web decoration. They had so much fun playing the game, and some even came back to play again! It was an enjoyable event for all and the brothers were glad they could help the New Brunswick community.

Cook Chapter- Haunted Bamboo

Originally Posted by Bryan D. Ryder

The Haunted Bamboo Forest was a philanthropy event held at the Rutgers Gardens, where the Cook Chapter set up a haunted walk for the children through the bamboo forest. While the entire night was free, we were collecting donations for the preservation of the Rutgers Gardens. Furthermore, our event coincided with the weekly farmer’s market at the Rutgers Gardens, where people could come to the gardens to purchase fresh produce from local farmers and small businesses. Overall, the event was designed to promote awareness of a place that has contributed so much to the promotion of agriculture at Rutgers University, while providing local children a fun Halloween experience. Afterwards, the children and their families were encouraged to return to Cook Campus for the annual Monster Mash.

Walking along the road, we picked up any litter that had been left behind and filled many garbage bags full of trash. ...

Not only did this Service Event help us assist our local community, but it also put ...
