The Store

This was my first time going to the Store, and I was so happy I could lend my services to an unsung service on campus. I restocked food items, cleaned around the food pantry, and helped with trash clean up. As a student who has often worried about how food insecurity might affect me at GW one day, it was comforting to know there is a safety net available that provides not only nonperishable food products, but professional clothing, sanitary products, and fresh food items as well.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service & Leadership 2020

Having positive impacts on the community, whether that be organizing a roof garden or cleaning an art classroom, is a reflective and useful way to spend the day off to celebrate MLK's vision for everyone's ability to do service.

Melissa @ March for Our Lives GW

For our class project, we decided to work with March for Our Lives GW to spread the Peace Plan among the GW community. Our group, Peace not Grief, held a tabling event in District where GW community members could learn about current presidential candidates' positions on gun policy and write to them on letters containing the Peace Plan. This was an amazing opportunity to be directly engaged in activism and I hope to see GW students and politicians alike pushing for the adoption of the Peace Plan as codified policy in the future.

Gave 30.00 hours between 12/09/2019 and 12/10/2019 with Community-Engaged Scholarship, Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL), George Washington University, HSSJ 1177 Organizing Social Justice and Human Services, Kappa Alpha Theta, Panhellenic Association, Student Organizations
GW College Democrats

It was great meeting other members of Dems to relax before finals while making blankets for a great cause.

Melissa @ GroW Garden

I love gardening and miss the work I usually do at home in the spring, so an opportunity to do so at GW especially in a city setting was a welcome way to start the week. I was also able to do so with my Theta sister Sara Currie which made the experience of puling out weeds and tilling the soil even more enjoyable. The produce that will be harvested in the future also goes to a great cause I am happy to support.

Sandwich making for Martha's Table- Theta and SDT

I volunteered with my Theta sisters and Sigma Delta Tau sisters to make peanut better and jelly sandwiches for donation to Martha's Table. I loved being able to spend time with my sisters for such a great cause to combat hunger with healthy meals and have fun while doing it.

GW Dance Marathon

Individually, I raised $325 for donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. I attended the GW Dance Marathon event for a full 12 hours along with my Kappa Alpha Theta sisters on the Yellow team

Excel Academy

I volunteered with GW College Dems to go to Excel Academy, an all girls school serving up to grade 8 that is part of DC Public Schools in Ward 8, to paint murals with positive quotes and designs throughout the student bathrooms. Our group focused on a unicorn/pastel/rainbow theme with empowering messages. It was a fun way to make a positive impact on young girls as well as use my creativity and painting skills I haven't been able to utilize since getting to college.
