During the month of October, several chapters enjoy getting out into their communities and participating in local Halloween events! From dressing up and handing out candy to children to raising funds and awareness for those in need, read on to see what some of our chapters did to mark the holiday!
Chapters like those at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and the University of Southern Mississippi helped to put on carnivals for children in the community, hosting games and passing out candy and bringing smiles to many young faces.
Some chapters used the holiday’s theme as a fun excuse to dress in costume and socialize. Virginia Commonwealth University members dressed up and got together at a local restaurant. Grand Valley State University members kept it light and fun by volunteering to dress up and scare people in the woods at a local Halloween haunted house.
The University of Memphis Chapter volunteered at a local Boo Ball at which they prepared and served food to the attendants there to support a local museum. And members at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign joined with Habitat for Humanity in their Trick-or-Treat for Change initiative, raising over $500 in less than two hours to benefit those living in substandard dwellings! Wow!
We love seeing how our chapters use a variety of avenues to bond with each other and get out into their communities!
