WWU’s Chi Omegas rake leaves for service project

No one likes the never-ending
task of raking leaves, but a group of college students spent their Saturday
afternoon doing just that.

New members of Chi
Omega sorority on William Woods University’s campus organized a “Rake-n-Run”
community service project. These students walked down Court Street, rakes and
bags in hand, and knocked on doors offering to rake and bag residents’ leaves.

Homeowners who were away
found a clean yard and a note from the Chi Omegas when they returned.

Participants said it
was a great time to bond as sisters and give back to the community.

Erin Strickland, Chi
Omega new member, commented on the day’s activities, “I thought today was fun
because it made you feel good inside and it was nice meeting residents of the
Fulton community!”

Chi Omega sorority
nationally supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, but WWU members were happy they
could spend a day giving back to the local community.
