Serving & Socializing
SAL chapters have enjoyed the spirit of the fall season this school year. In addition to the Food Fight Against Hunger, members have decorated cards for kids, hosted fun social events and volunteered at fun Halloween activities.
University of Virginia members participated in an annual trick or treating on the lawn event where they passed out candy to hundreds of Charlottesville children. El Centro College held SALoween for students on campus. The event had games such as a cake walk, Poke a Pumpkin and musical chairs, a dance show, and a costume contest. Other clubs used SALoween as an opportunity to fundraise by hosting a face painting booth. All officers wore SAL t-shirts, making this an excellent public relations event as well as a lot of fun for the students. University of North Carolina Wilmington also took advantage of Halloween to serve the community. Members volunteered at a local Halloween carnival where children were able paint pumpkins, collect candy, and play games. Grand Valley State University dressed up in costumes to operate a trail at Forest of Fear.
James Madison University took advantage of the fall weather to have an apple picking outing as well as a pumpkin patch social. This bonding opportunity included a corn maze, picking out pumpkins, and other seasonal activities. Pumpkins were also on the agenda for Oklahoma State University’s chapter. After their general body meeting in October, members carved and painted pumpkins together.
These events were a great way for members to get to know each other and enjoy helping others a few months into the school year!
