We aim to participate in at least 3 service events a semester. We hope to make an impact on issues our sisters are passionate about and involve the local community, both MIT and Boston at large.
We’ve volunteered at Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. We helped zoo keepers clean habitats and maintain a safe living environment for the animals.
We have also volunteered cleaning the Esplanade, at the Salvation Army, and at Landmark Senior Living Community.
Previously we performed a blanket-making service project with Kappa Alpha Theta, another sorority on campus, and with the DPhiE chapter at Northeastern. The blankets were donated to Project Linus. Project Linus provides these homemade blankets to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.
We also worked with Cradles to Crayons, an organization that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school, and at play. Our sisters helped sort through items donated to Cradles to Crayons and prepare them to be gifted to those in need.
