For 12-02-10, this service project was planned in order to collect items for care packages and pack the boxes that we have sent to soldiers over seas. Our service chair, Kaitlyn Summerfield, planned this event. Planning included setting a convenient time and place to meet, setting requirements for what could be donated as far as gifts and money to help ship the boxes, and then being in charge of actually shipping the boxes.

Florida Fall '10 pledge Hygiene Supply Drive Service 11-29-10

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Members of the 2010 Fall Pledge Class decided to contribute items to a campus-wide collection of shampoo, deodorant, body wash, and other personal bath products that were to be given to a shelter in the Gainesville community that serves abused and homeless women. In completing this service event, members of the pledge class were able to help those women who are hurt and in need, while at the same time getting to know one another and other members of other organizations across campus. This counted as a service event for the pledges and could be one of their two required service points for the semester.

Florida Fall '10 pledge A. Quinn Jones Food Drive Service 11-12 - 17-10

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This project was put on by other groups at the University of Florida who asked other clubs and fraternities to help contribute cans and nonperishable items for the underserved Gainesville population. Some members of the Fall 2010 pledge class contributed to this cause by donating at least 5 cans or other food items in order to receive a service point that would count as one of their two required service events for their pledging semester. This was a rewarding project to participate in for pledge class members got to interact with each other as well as other students and members of other organizations on campus, all the while helping our local community.

October 29th was quite a blustery, cold day at Rutgers University but that did not stop 21 members and 3 pledges of Alpha Zeta from giving back to the local New Brunswick Community. We hosted a table where we had games and candy for the kids of New Brunswick to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment. There were over 50 different Rutgers Organizations there to promote the importance of community and service.

The Fall 2010 Pledge Class participated in a 5K walk/run to raise money for two different organizations: The Mary Kay Foundation which helps support finding a cure for breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancers, and Peaceful Paths, which helps provide grants to women's shelters who have suffered from domestic violence. A few of the pledge class members were able to benefit from this event by getting to know each other during their walk/run while helping out the community. A group of pledges got together and each paid $15 in advance to participate in the walk/run.

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Fall 2010 Pledge Class contributed to the project as a means of service to our Gainesville community. Members of the pledge class met up to bring canned goods and various other items to a central location (bus) that was destined for the underserved population in Gainesville. This counted as one of the pledge's two required service events and helped bring the future brothers closer together as well as helped individuals in our community who are in need.
