On December 11th on a very chilly Saturday morning at 9 a.m., 22 brothers of the Cook Chapter woke up to run/walk the Big Chill. The Big Chill is an annual charity run for children in need that Rutgers University holds. Every participant brings a toy as their entry fee for under privileged children of the New Brunswick area to help make their holiday season a little brighter.

Soldier Box Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

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. Our chapter benefited by being a part of supporting our troops and seeing how our efforts directly impact their lives...

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.

Walk and Wag

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

As one of our community service projects this year, the North Carolina Chapter thought it would be fun to participate in our county's "Walk-n-Wag" event held at Koka Booth Amphitheater on Oct 24. It was a 1 mile walk where people would pay $20 to register, bring their dogs, walk, and participate in different competitions. Since many brothers have dogs and family members battling cancer, we thought it was a good opportunity for us to show our support...
