Community Service means that we want to make a difference on our campuses and in our communities.  We know that giving back to others unselfishly makes the world a better place and makes us better people.   Serving and giving helps to connect us.

  Save your pop can tops for Ronald Mc Donald House. They get paid per pound. Last year they collected enough tops to earn $10,000.  We are fortunate that Jeanne Reddick has her family collect tops at their bar.  With her contribution our latest trip to RMcD weighed about 15 pounds!  They were very appreciative.

RMcD is in the middle of construction of rooms for 17 more beds.  They are always full and will make good use of the new rooms.

We raised funds for Make-A-Wish with a basket raffle at our Eleusinian Brunch this year.
Donations of food and cash were collected for the Cleveland Food Bank.

We supported local Girl Scout', Katie Colins' Gold Award effort by donating unwanted BRAS!  She will collect bras at the Panhel luncheon.  The bras will be completely recycled, with parts becoming "Red Carpet" for celebrity events.  Proceeds from the recycling will go to Breast cancer research.
