Greek Week Incorporates Service

This year our fraternities and sororities are incorporating service into Greek Week and will be participating in Day of Caring on Thursday, September 11, 2014. This service experience has been made possible thanks to a partnership with the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley.  

Day of Caring will consist of a kick-off lunch hosted by the Community Service Office at 12PM (Location TBD), and then groups of volunteers will serve the community from 1-4PM.  There will be many different volunteer projects scattered around the Lehigh Valley for us to participate in and, in order to make this volunteer experience successful, we are asking for a minimum of 10 volunteers per chapter.  Each chapter is responsible for their own transportation.

Community service chairs should register as their chapter's respective team leader here. Community service chairs should then choose which event their chapter would like to participate in here

NOTE: Because this is our first year partnering with the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, it is imperative that we have a strong representation from each chapter. This event can either be an amazing opportunity to show our local community that Lehigh Greeks are thoughtful and caring individuals, or by the same token we can easily show these organizations and our community that we aren't responsible. Let’s have a great time by showing the Lehigh Valley that our Greek community is comprised of outstanding individuals.
