Chapter Spotlight: The Zeta Iota Chapter helps ConKerr Cancer
Today on the Phi Sigma Pi Blog we have a great post from Caroline Lembo (Zeta Iota Chapter ’15) on how the Members of her Chapter added the Tripod to their recruitment events. Enjoy!
My name is Caroline Lembo and I am the Recruitment Advisor for Zeta Iota Chapter at St. Joseph’s University. After attending National Convention, I was immediately inspired to refresh our Recruitment Process. One thought that came almost naturally to me was incorporating every aspect of what we are as a Fraternity – why not let the potential members experience what they will be joining? Social was easy to accomplish – almost every night was icebreakers or a fun way to get everyone out of their shell. The scholarship was also easy, because the Zeta Iota Chapter loves quizzo, so I hosted an under the sea quizzo event!
I looked high and low, asked a slew of people, and did so much research for an innovative service event that I hadn’t heard of at all before. I came across decorating pillowcases, and immediately loved the idea. Not only would we be able to add our own flares to the cases, but we’d also be brightening a day of someone less fortunate.
The Zeta Iota Chapter decorates pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer.
I ordered pillowcases on www.pillowcases.net
and fabric markers on www.orientaltrading.com
, two very easy-to-work-with companies with prompt arrivals. All I needed, after that, were positive attitudes and open mindedness!
One of my Brothers, Dante Gleason (Zeta Iota Chapter ’16), told me about ConKerr Cancer
, an organization that one of his professors helps greatly. According to the company’s website
, “Our mission is heartfelt – to provide smiles to children with life changing illnesses and to make them feel special.”
It was rewarding, fun, and an overall boost to all of our days to know that these pillowcases were going somewhere great.
The Zeta Iota Chapter was also featured on the ConKerr Cancer website (<—check it out).
