Movie Night for TerpThon
Our University of Maryland College Park chapter held a movie night to support UMD’s TerpThon, a student-run organization that supports patients and families fighting pediatric illnesses.
SAL UMD invited students to view Monsters University together. Each participant’s donation to TerpThon included admission to the movie, snacks, and the pleasure of contributing to Children’s National, UMD’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. To boost attendance, “each officer identified a platform where they could showcase our TerpThon Movie Night flyer,” said chapter president Kaleigh Pikulsky. Their efforts and contributions worked: attendees donated $45 to the cause.
In addition to hosting movie night, SAL officers also encouraged members to raise funds to be eligible to participate in the TerpThon Dance Marathon. Together, SAL members at UMD are making a big impact on the lives of children and their families.
