Helen Keller once said, “I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”What she meant is sacrifice doesn’t have to be large to be noble. By helping each other daily, we can achieve greatness.
Our main goal as AOII women is to emphasize servant leadership by selflessly serving others within our campus and community. Here are some highlights capturing just a few of the many community service opportunities that we are involved in as a chapter!
As AOII women, one of the four pillars that lay the foundation that we are built upon is service. Each semester, our Community Service Chairman coordinates with various places thorughout the community that might need additional help or assistance with a particular cause. We call these our ALPHA events, and each member partakes in many of these events throughout the duration of the semester. Some of our favorite community service events include:
-Building Houses with Habitat for Humanity
-Volunteering at the Tangi Humane Society
-Mardi Gras Parading at our Local Nursing Home
-Volunteering at a Local Veteran's Shelter
-Valentine's Day with Students at the SLU Lab School
-Building Boxes of Sunshine for Men and Women Serving our Country Overseas
-Valentines for First Responders
-The Big Event at Southeastern Louisiana University
-Volunteering at the Hospice Gala for the Richard Murphy Hospice Foundation
