INDIANAPOLIS (December 1, 2015) – Chapters throughout the fraternity have been engaging with their communities through service, awareness campaigns, and discussions.
|Throughout the fall 2015 semester, chapters like the Chi Phi Chapter brought in business professionals, non-members and alumni alike to speak to the chapter and the community. In their mid-November event, the chapter invited Co-founders of am.azed, Constantine Spandagos and Anna Wong, and recruiter of Uber, Sho Takei to give a professional talk. These panel discussions provide a source for those on a job hunt, who want to learn more about a specific industry/cause, and learn about entrepreneurship.|
|Bringing awareness to their community, the Iota Upsilon Chapter provides another opportunity for members to be involved. The chapter built, decorated, and spent the night in a cardboard house. The event is an attempt to raise awareness of homelessness in the community, as well as around the world. This event brings light to a cause the chapter is passionate about, and demonstrates their commitment to educate the community on the issue.|
|The Seattle Alumni Chapter and other brother from around the area volunteered earlier this fall by banding together to unload four truck-loads of mulch in support of Mountains to Sound Greenway The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust leads and inspires action to conserve and enhance the landscape from Seattle across the Cascade Mountains to Central Washington, ensuring a long-term balance between people and nature. With help from their families and other alumni, the chapter gave back to their community in the pouring rain, all-the-while keeping service and brotherhood on their minds.|
These chapters included their community in discussions, brought a new perspective through community awareness and involved the local community by improving the landscape. The events can be big with over 200 people involved, or they can be a small donation of time planting trees in a local area. Most importantly, it doesn’t matter the size of what they gave or how many people came to help, it’s the dedication they put in.
