UF Earth Day Service and Social 4/22/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter celebrated Earth Day by giving back to the community. Members cleaned up our adopted road with the help of some of our newest additions. The members that participated in the clean-up did not mind taking time out of their schedule, as the last 3 days of classes came closer and made graduation ever closer for some or the next year of school for others, to pick up the trash and get it off the street. The road clean-up was planned for the morning to avoid the heat of the day and to be completed when the Horticulture Departments Earth Day event started...

UF Operation Catnip Service 4/15/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter participated in the monthly Operation Catnip (OC) spay/neuter clinic. OC provides free spay/neuter, vaccines, and treatment for parasites to community cats from Alachua County, FL at no charge to the caregivers. Since 1998, OC has fixed over 31,000 cats. At monthly "spay days" over 200 cats are fixed in just hours thanks to a team of volunteers and the space for the clinic is donated by the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. Volunteers are assigned to a variety of tasks from check in to surgery preparation and recovery. This unique program gave our members an opportunity to gain some hands on experience in veterinary medicine. With many of our members pursuing medical degrees it gave them the chance to work first hand.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter participated or volunteered at the first annual FOG Jog. The Florida Organic Growers put on the 5K Run/Walk to help raise funds. The event was a fun and healthy way for members to help raise funds for Florida Organic Growers (FOG), a local non-profit which supports and promotes organic, sustainable agriculture and nutritional food in our community. It was a blast for members to help support the local community and give back while keeping healthy.

UF Pledge Class Pet Food/Toy Collection Service 4/7/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class put together a pet food and toys drive for the Humane Society in Gainesville. The Humane Society is a non-profit organization that strives to eliminate euthanasia of healthy, treatable cats and dogs in the area where they work quickly to find them new homes. All services they provide are made possible by volunteers and donations such as ours. A few of the pledges were able to deliver the bags of food and toys to help the dogs and cats in need. The members and pledges were able to give just a little which can make a huge difference in the lives of these animals in the community around us.

International Coastal Cleanup Day!

Originally posted by Rafael Sierra Curbelo

As a part of our compromise with the community and the environment the past September 15, 2012 members of Alpha Zeta, Puerto Rico Chapter, in collaboration with many other associations of our Agriculture Faculty we were participating in the International Coastal Cleanup Day. It’s an event that is promoted by Ocean Conservancy, an entity that educated the people implementing the importance of protecting the oceans and its wildlife. It’s an activity that gives us awareness about the importance of maintaining the coast free of trash. It was also a socializing activity in where members of different associations shared and worked together for our environment.

We collected a bunch of trash cleaning up the community and making the people in the area very happy...

NC Stream Cleanup

NC Stream Cleanup

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On Saturday September 8th, six brothers met to pick up trash around a stream that runs through NCSU’s campus. This is a project that the North Carolina Chapter usually participates in once a semester to aid university maintenance. Our service coordinator organized the project and supplied the group with gloves and trash bags. At 10am, brothers cleaned up an area that many joggers and bikers frequent for about an hour. It was a great morning to be outside. Brothers enjoyed spending time together while beautifying our campus.

NC Cemetery Flag Setting

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

The NC Chapter of Alpha Zeta has had an ongoing working relationship with Oakwood Cemetery in downtown Raleigh. Every semester we help them with general maintenance as well as other events such as the October Lantern Walk and Memorial Day Observance. This year six brothers donated their time on Saturday, May 5th, to help set out American Flags in front of gravestones. We also picked up trash and removed dead trees. The gentlemen at the cemetery are always very excited to see us and have our help!
