Nationally, the chapters return $38 million to local communities, touching 1.5 million children, seniors and families to whom volunteers have given 2.8 million hours of service. This chapter has no paid staff, and all members volunteer their time to perform philanthropic and fundraising work.
The chapter exists for the sole purpose of providing philanthropic services to meet the challenges posed by a diverse array of individual and community needs. Community based philanthropic programs are built through needs assessments, identifying community problems and delivering the solutions to fit the need. Funds are raised through volunteer activities and used to provide services for the community.
Members develop, fund and participate in programs that provide new school clothing for hundreds of children in need, provide activities for senior citizens, donate and distribute reading materials to patients and families at local hospitals, and support grieving parents. The chapter also addresses short term needs in the community.
