Greek Week Comes to an End

Greek Week has been in full swing all month and now sadly comes to end. A special thanks to all of the girls who put in countless hours for Greek Week ‘10! Overall, DGs donated tons of time for great service sites around Columbia, contributed thousands and thousands of food items for local families in need, donated blood at what ends up being the largest blood drive year after year, flaunted our artistic abilities on stage and our athletic abilities on the field, raised thousands of dollars for our individual beneficiary this year: The UCP Easter Seals, and had tons of fun while doing it all!

Stephanie Faerber (08) organized over 40 girls volunteering their Saturday afternoon to a variety of service sites such as Special Olympics, Day of Service, and Caring for Columbia.
A special thanks to Breanna Hance (08): Our pairing placed 3rd in the annual Food Drive, bringing in over 3,200 canned food items. Altogether the drive brought in over 21,000lbs of food for families in Columbia! For comparison, last year’s drive brought in just under 9,000lbs of food, (more than doubled our numbers) GOOD WORK! And thanks to everyone who helped us reach these totals.
We donated four baskets full of household goods for the Necessity Drive.
