First and foremost, I bring to you greetings from the “Glamorous and Fly” Gamma Xi Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. The poodles here at Florida Memorial University work diligently together on recruiting new members and working hard for the good Sigma. We are big on living by the principles, “Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service.”
Right after making their special presentation to the campus, the neophytes of Spring 2018 began working by giving back their service. Their first community service was at the “Million Meal Pack.” The event is put together by the Miami Dolphins and AARP. The objective of the event was to pack over 1 million meals to be delivered by U.S. Hunger to adults in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. The volunteers were able to pack 1,017,504 meals. I found the event to be very enjoyable and entertaining. One thing about giving back your time, is the joy you find in it!
The event began with thousands of people in an assembly line. We combined ingredients and nutrients to make the meals. The best part about the event was competing with the other tables to see who would make the most meals within the time span. We also got the opportunity to engage with players from the Miami Dolphins team.
It was definitely a pleasure knowing that we helped fed thousands of people within the community!
