Packing boxes for service

Panhellenic Association attended a Feed My Starving Children packing session to encourage service in the Greek community and pack over 40 meal boxes that will feed 25 children around the world.

“Each sorority has a high regard for service, so it’s always awesome to see women from the sororities come together and give back to the community,” said Beth Chapman ’18, who attended the service trip. “It’s something that each of us genuinely cares about.” 

On the afternoon of October 27, members from Alpha Phi, Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Delta Gamma worked together to fill over 40 boxes with meal packs at Feed My Starving Children in Libertyville, Illinois. 

A total of 15 sorority members attended the event to represent Panhellenic Association, the board that oversees sororities on campus.The event was run and organized by Vice President of Scholarship and Service from Panhellenic Association Lexie Brown ’19. 

Completing service hours throughout the year is a major component of being a member of the four sororities. Panhellenic Association encourages sororities to give back to the community by hosting service trips every semester, like the one at Feed My Starving Children, which is a non-profit organization that works to provide nutritionally balanced meals to malnourished children around the world. 

Elena Stecko ’18 found the event to be impactful. “It was a great opportunity to bond with sisters and learn more about community service,” she said, “which is why I hope to attend other events like this again.”
