NC Operation Christmas Child

Originally Posted By Sara N. Fleming

This Fall, the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta decided to again participate in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program. Brothers were eager to participate. The service committee sent out information about the boxes, label and shipping fees so that brothers could turn in boxes at our regular business meetings on November 13th or by Thanksgiving. Many brothers filled empty shoe or plastic boxes to send to children around the world. Boxes could be designed for boys or girls ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Items in the boxes included toys, school supplies, hygiene items, hard candy, t-shirts, and personal notes. Brothers paid a $7 shipping fee for their box. The service committee delivered the boxes to a drop-off location so that the boxes could meet the National Collection Week deadline. This project is a great way to spread joy during the holiday season and put a smile on a child’s face

This is a time for graduates of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to enjoy a barbecue meal and see what has been going on with the organizations that they participated in in college. After this time of fellowship, the alumni then attend the NC State football game. Many alumni also bring their children that are enrolled at NC State or may enroll at NC State in the future.

The Alumni Tailgate Committee created a game with agricultural facts to ask visitors. Our chapter had 3 brothers on Saturday to answer questions about our chapter's upcoming events. We had a photo display of the service projects that we have participated in along with photos taken at NALC. Our scrapbook was also on display and we gave away candy

It was wonderful to meet with him and introduce the new officer team of the 2013-2014 year. The dean was very excited about the upcoming events of Alpha Zeta and wanted to lend a helping hand wherever he could.

First all five officers participated in a breakfast at I-hop at 8:30 am with one of the advisors who shared her experiences as a brother and gave us advice for the upcoming here. Next all five officers participated in various tasks from 10 am to 3 pm at the newly built Hunt Library on NC state Universitiy’s centennial campus. The officers separately and collaboratively created lists of goals and comments regarding what activities they thought needed updating or reorganizing. The officers were given opportunities to work together to complete other fun tasks such as a leadership style/personality test and then Chancellor Alvey led us in a discussion to prepare us for this semester.  We discussed how we have worked well together, what steps we could take to improve teamwork, as well as details for close events.  For a lunch break and some general social time the officers enjoyed lunch at Mitch’s Tavern on Hillsborough Street.
