UF Ronald McDonald House Service 2/21/12 & 2/23/12

UF Ronald McDonald House Service 2/21/12 & 2/23/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter took their lunch break to go join up with other organizations and sororities to help out at the local Ronald McDonald House in Gainesville. While at the house members help remove and replace box springs and mattresses in the house. The Ronald McDonald House provides temporary housing, basic amenities and support to families with critically ill children seeking treatment at area medical facilities. The program helps to stabilize situations for families and allow them to concentrate all of their time and energy on the treatment and recovery of their children. By just changing out their beds to something newer and more comfortable we may have just made their day a tad better!...

UF Air Potato Round Up Service 1/28/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida chapter grabbed bags and gloves to remove one of Gainesville’s most threatening plant species- the air potato. The theme of the event this year was "Beware of the Dark Side Darth Tater” and the forest was with our members on this particular morning. This annual event is attended by hundreds of Gainesville residents who spend the day working in local parks and on the University of Florida campus to remove the invasive plant, which really does resemble a potato. This year, 5700 lbs of air potatoes were collected from all over the city, as well as 95 bags of trash. AZ members felt great about helping the Gainesville community, and celebrated after at the Morningside Nature Center, enjoying food, music, and brotherhood.

On October 29th, the brotherhood got together early that morning at Oakwood Cemetery in downtown Raleigh to help set up for their annual Lantern Walk. The brotherhood helped fill old 2 liter soda bottles with sand and placed candles in them on top of the sand. We made a safe path for the families that planned on attending that nights lantern walk. The brotherhood helps with a lot of the events that the Cemetery holds every year and this is one of the funnest ones...

The Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta hosted the National Service Project for the second time. 10 brothers came from Florida and across the country to help in the Orlando area. The trip was an opportunity for members to work hard and make a difference in the lives of people we encountered or helped. The 10 members who came to Orlando worked extremely hard and made a huge difference in the lives of disadvantaged people in the Central Florida area!

UF Cards for Pediatric Caner Patients Service 12/1/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter joined up with Friends for Life who represents the annual Hearts for the Holidays event. The event encourages UF students, faculty and staff to make holiday cards to pediatric cancer patients who will spend the holidays in the hospital. They attempt to send cards to one hospital in every state. Hearts for the Holidays gives university students and our members the chance to provide support for children fighting cancer. Our chapter benefited by coming together in order to make the lives of others better during the time of year where hope is in the area. The cards were delivered to the Friends for Life representatives to distribute to the hospitals.

During our initiation weekend at the beginning of November, our chapter participated in Adopt-a-Highway which we do every semester during our initiation weekend. It is the first community service event the new members have the opportunity to participate in officially. Fourteen members were able to participate this semester. We have a 2 mile stretch about 10min. from campus that we are assigned to clean. The event always ends with a lunch at a restaurant in Ithaca.

UF Canned Food Drive Service 11/15/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching the Florida Chapter decided to be thankful for what we have and pass on the gift of food who are not as fortunate. Members collected cans to donate to the St. Francis House in Gainesville. The St. Francis House is there to provide emergency food, temporary shelter, transitional housing, and related support services in a safe, secure environment for people who find themselves confronted with homelessness and hunger in the Alachua County. The cans will be given to the St. Francis House where they will distribute them to people in need around the area. The event allowed our members to give back to the community and try to change someone's luck one can at a time.
