week, brothers of the Florida Chapter coordinated with our current pledge class
to conduct our first road clean up of the year!
We clean our road (which we adopted through the local Adopt-A-Street
program) at least six times a year, so brothers are quite familiar with the

introduce some of the pledge class to what has become a service tradition for

Saturday, February 21st, the Florida Chapter participated in Project
Makeover. Project Makeover is a
student-run nonprofit at the University of Florida that chooses an elementary
school in Alachua County to makeover each year.
The projects are focused on improving the learning environment for
students, whether it is through grounds beautification or the introduction of
new learning tools. This year's school
was Metcalfe Elementary, and the overarching theme of the project was
"play". Our time at Project
Makeover was spent beautifying one of the school's playgrounds. We raked up bags and bags of leaves and pine needles, and we collected pine cones to be used for art projects. Project Makeover was a perfect way to get
connected to the community in a way we hadn't before, and we look forward to
participating again in the future to help improve local education where we can.

Saturday, February 7th, brothers from the Florida Chapter spent the morning at
Wilmot Gardens. Wilmot Gardens is a 5
acre area located on campus. The garden
serves the UF community as well as the patients receiving care at the Shands
Medical Plaza adjacent to campus. Wilmot
Gardens is currently undergoing a restoration project that is focused on creating
healing and meditation areas. During our
service at Wilmot Gardens, we helped with ground and plant maintenance for
areas included in the restoration project.
The weather was beautiful, and we enjoyed getting our hands dirty while
contributing to a garden with such a great mission for our community!

the first two weeks of the semester, brothers from the Florida Chapter
participated in a shoe drive run by a UF student organization called Just Shoe
It. Throughout the year, Just Shoe It
conducts several shoe collections, each focused on a different group of recipients. For this collection, all donations went to local
blueberry workers in need of sneakers or work boots. It was great to be able to support
local community members in agriculture!

Four members of the Townshend Chapter at The Ohio State University participated in Ohio State's annual dance marathon, BuckeyeThon. BuckeyeThon is a 24 hour dance marathon divided into two 12 hour shifts that raises money for the Children's Miracle Network. BuckeyeThon is also the largest student-run philantrophy at Ohio State and raises money for Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio throughout the year through a variety of events. This year BuckeyeThon dancers raised over $1,231,290.00. Alpha Zeta members were just four of the hundreds of dancers that never sat down during a 12 hour shift. They danced the night away for the kids.
