A Week to GIVE
A Week to GIVE is an annual event coordinated by the Inter-Sorority Association and Interfraternity Council that encourages fraternities and sororities to participate in service projects as a community.
Held each November, A Week to GIVE kicks off with the Senior Citizens Prom at Meadowbrook Healthcare. In preparation for this event, fraternity and sorority members decorate the nursing home and help residents with their hair and makeup. During the Prom, fraternity/sorority members serve as escorts for the residents and provide corsages, entertainment, and limousine rides.
Another annual event during A Week to GIVE is the Faculty/Staff Appreciation Program. ISA and IFC purchase baskets of apples from local orchards and deliver them to campus departments in appreciation for their support.
During the entire week, each organization is asked to coordinate their own service event or collaborate with another organization to participate in community service. Popular projects include the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen, Oak Street Elementary Study Buddy Program, and Champlain Valley Habitat for Humanity.
A Week to GIVE culminates with the Up 'til Dawn Late Night Event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
