Alpha Zeta California Epsilon strives on giving back to the children and families of the Central Valley. Throughout the month of November and into December, members of our chapter were working hard to secure donations from families, friends, and local businesses to fulfill the mission of Project Shoebox. The goal of Alpha Zeta, Cal Epsilon's Project Shoebox was to assemble gifts for the underprivileged children in Fresno. These shoeboxes were to contain a variety of things (toys and necessities) that the children in our city may not get for Christmas. On December 7, 2011, a handful of members went shopping for all of the goodies for the boxes with one goal in mind: fill as many shoeboxes as possible. The following morning, December 8, 2011, a group of members met to wrap the shoeboxes and fill the boxes with the purchased products. We were able to fill 50 boxes and deliver them to the local Bulldog Pantry for distribution. We are fortunate to be able to give back to the community that has been so supportive of our chapter. Alpha Zeta California Epsilon wishes you and your family a happy holiday season!
