One week left!

December 03, 2017

We have one week left to reach our $3000 goal! Right now we are just $900 short. Keep sharing the link to our LaunchKU page and spreading the word to friends and family. Thank you for your continued support!

​Here’s an update on the happenings of the chapter in the past week...

Last Tuesday, a group of 17 members and pledges volunteered at Harvesters Community Food Network in Kansas City. Harvesters feeds over 141 thousand people each month, so volunteers are always needed!  Those who attended sorted pallets of canned goods into boxes for local distribution. Everyone who went had a really good time!

On Saturday, members of Zeta Chapter ran a STEM learning camp for 4th and 5th graders through an organization called SPARK. The students learned about density and buoyancy, and they competed to build a sail boat that could hold the most weight and travel the fastest.  These kids definitely have the potential to become future engineers!  

 

Check out some pictures from Harvesters and SPARK below.

Over halfway!

With your help we have raised over half of our goal! Thank you so much for supporting our chapter. We have just 12 days left to raise the remaining $1,410 needed to reach our goal. If you or someone you know is interested in giving, tomorrow (11/28) is Giving Tuesday which makes it an opportune time to make a donation! We would be honored if you participated in this event by supporting Zeta Chapter, sharing our project on social media, and spreading the word to friends and family. Help us keep the momentum going to reach our $3000 goal!

Here's an update on what Zeta Chapter has been up to...

This week our active members had the opportunity to connect with Zeta alumni and each other at our chapter reunion. Thank you to Brother Bob Bibb for hosting this event! We updated alumni on the current happenings of our organization, and heard lots of stories about the history of our chapter. Did you know Zeta alumni include an astronaut, a member of the basketball hall of fame, and a former President of Standard Oil of Ohio? It's cool to see the impact this organization has had on so many people's lives. Check out some pictures from the event below!
