The Puerto Rico chapter has been busy all semester hosting various fundraising events for their chapter. Here is a sampling of some of their most recent events:
As a way to help out the victims of the February 12 earthquake in Haiti,
members put a table in front of a local supermarket in the Mayagüez
Town Center to collect money and items to send to the Haiti. Items
collected included canned goods, water and first-aid supplies.
Members volunteer to sell breakfast sandwiches, donuts, muffins and juice at a stand in Biology building of the University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez. Members were raising money for future activities such as their New Member Initiation. They were able to raise $83 from this one event alone!T-Shirt Sell
The chapter participated in the annual parade, Cinco Dias con Nuestra Tierra, where local agronomists, horticulturists, artisans and breeders come together to sell their belongings (harvests or breeds). Members sold T-shirts with agricultural messages and also participated in the parade to represent Alpha Zeta. The chapter earned almost $400 from selling T-shirts at the parade!
