How many folks take vacation days from work and use them to do volunteer work? Other than Tim Tebow, not many. Since Wednesday, I’ve been doing a variety of volunteer activities to benefit my fraternity’s educational foundation and we’re making great strides. When I say “we” I’m referring to our foundation’s Chief Operations Officer and I since he’s been staying at my place since Wednesday. It’s exciting and fun. We’ve raised well over $10,000 in the last few days and we’ve helped train five new volunteers for my local chapter’s scholarship fund.
Today, we’re headed to North Jersey to a statewide workshop where we will educate our younger members on just what the Foundation is and what the Foundation provides for them. In addition, we’ll be talking to some of New Jersey’s alumni volunteers and thanking them for their continued support.
It’s been a busy staycation to say the least – I’m actually looking forward to going back to work on Monday so that I can slow down a little bit! As I said in the last update, I have a lot of pictures and other stuff to post on the blog in the coming days, so stay tuned.
