This is one of many philanthropy events our chapter completes each year. It helps to raise awareness for lukemia and lymphoma as well as helping efforts to find a cure...

Terrace Recycles

Originally posted by Paola Luna

Terrace is near campus residential community. Alpha Zeta Puerto Rico helped in the voluntary project "Terrace Recycles” that brings together temporary collage students as well as permanent residences with the objective of a better community lifestyle and environment, by creating awareness of the contamination of the natural resources, water and air pollution. In this activity we promoted this project inside the campus by the distribution of flyers, orientation and with a shirt sale that encourages students to recycle that raised money for future activities. This was a tremendous opportunity to create conscious about the environment by promoting how and where to recycle. Also members helped promote Terrace’s eco-friendly workshops and educational activities like the "Recycling of Televisions” and "How to Re-Use” workshop.

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.

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!
