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:

Haiti Fundraiser

February 21-22
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. 

Breakfast Sell
March 8
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
March 16-19
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!
