We’ve sprung forward an hour, there are finally signs that Spring is on its way and Brothers are planning and performing all kinds of fantastic service projects and events. So it’s the perfect time for an Hours of Hope update!
So, where are we?: 21,000 hours! That’s up from 16,000 since our last update.
Where do we need to be?: We want to perform 100,000 hours of service to the community by our centennial in 2016, so that means we still have 79,000 hours to go.
What do I need to do to help?: We’re asking all Chapters and Brothers to make sure they are logging all service events, either as a group or individually.
Does my service count?: Not sure if your service counts? The following service events and projects are considered eligible for Hours of Hope:
- Chapter service events (Collegiate and Alumni), like Gamma Tau Chapter’s work with Youth Rebuilding New Orleans. Brothers volunteered with this local organization that helps rebuild homes in the area.
- Individual community service project participation, like Jessica Kern from the Alpha Theta Chapter. She volunteers with the Feline Friends Program at the St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center where she feeds, cleans and socializes with the cats and helps make matches for their adoptions.
- National and Regional service events, like the Feeding America Service Project at this year’s Alumni Convention in Las Vegas.
Don’t wait, go to Hours of Hope and submit your hours now!
