With a short amount of time and members we were able to wrap over 30 presents and numerically organize the presents to their designated areas. We had a great time giving back to the community and also collaborating with the ...

Today, members of the Florida Chapter went out to our road in Gainesville to perform a road clean up. It was a great bonding experience for our members because we had one of initiated pledges come out to our road for the first time! We picked up 2 bags of trash, and part of a car bumper. Additionally, this road clean up was very special because someone stopped and thanked us for cleaning the road. This was the first time that someone stopped and thanked us for our service. This action fuels ...

NC Operation Christmas Child

Originally Posted By Sara N. Fleming

This Fall, the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta decided to again participate in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program. Brothers were eager to participate. The service committee sent out information about the boxes, label and shipping fees so that brothers could turn in boxes at our regular business meetings on November 13th or by Thanksgiving. Many brothers filled empty shoe or plastic boxes to send to children around the world. Boxes could be designed for boys or girls ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Items in the boxes included toys, school supplies, hygiene items, hard candy, t-shirts, and personal notes. Brothers paid a $7 shipping fee for their box. The service committee delivered the boxes to a drop-off location so that the boxes could meet the National Collection Week deadline. This project is a great way to spread joy during the holiday season and put a smile on a child’s face

Edible Plant Project

Edible Plant Project

Originally posted by Jennifer W. West

Last weekend, the Florida Chapter took part in the Edible Plant Project at Siembra Farms. The Edible Plant Project is a nonprofit mission run by volunteers that strive to promote edible landscape and local food production. The Edible Plant Project’s goal is to create alternatives to the unsustainable food system in this country. When we arrived at the farm, we were separated into 2 different groups. One group picked sweet potatoes, while the other group tended to the green house. In the green house, we picked out the weeds, cleaned seeds, and planted sugarcane. All in all, the Florida Chapter was able to devote our time in a fun and farm friendly way!

Making Strides for Breast Cancer 5k

Making Strides for Breast Cancer 5k

Originally posted by Grace E. Poling

This was a fun run/walk sponsored by the American Cancer Society to raise funds for Breast Cancer research. The chapter participated by helping with walker/runner registration over the course of several hours on a Sunday morning. The chapter volunteered because we felt that this cause was more than worthy of our time and efforts. Those that participated walked away knowing that they had contributed, even in a small way, to finding a cure for cancer. Prior to the event, our chapter designated those that would participate as well as drivers for transportation to and from the event.
