Week of Service | October 26-November 2, 2019
Alpha Delta Pi’s first Week of Service is Oct 26th through Nov 2nd! In celebration of our 40th anniversary partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities, we are asking alumnae to choose one day throughout this week to give back. Whether you give to RMHC or volunteer for another organization within your community, we are asking all alumnae to participate! Alumnae, associations, and collegians are all invited to join. How will you give back?
What kind of activities should we plan for week of service?
Anything! Volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House, providing meals, activity or goodie bags, Host a shower for RMH, volunteer at the local food bank, clean a park/beach, check your community for opportunities
Who is included?
All ADPis, members of your association, local ADPis, collegiate chapter members, partners, children, parents, and non-ADPi friends!
Are there any restrictions?
Be sure to register your event with the charity and request their guidelines. Some organizations require advance notice of attendees or may not want children in attendance. Check if your event needs to be registered with the community.
What do we wear?
ADPi shirts, hats, buttons, ETC.!!! Need a new shirt? Check out The 1851 Shop. Please remember, you are representing Alpha Delta Pi and your local community
Why register our event?
We want all ADPis to have the opportunity to participate, including sisters who may be visiting your area. This will help from overlapping events and increase the number of sisters who can participate. Afterwards, the registered host will receive a survey to collect information about your event.
Where should we post our photos?
On your social media channels, but make sure to use the hashtags #ADPiWeekofService #ADPilovesRMHC. You can also email high quality photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do we do after the event?
Let us know how it went and share the fun. Note your attendance and hours, we will share the results of the day with everyone! Be on the lookout for a survey as well!
