As a chapter, we do ask each of our girls to complete 4 volunteer hours a semester. However, many of us go above and beyond. This is a shared passion that has brought many of us together, and is a great way to build our sisterhood while giving back to the community. Our primary Philanthropy is Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, specifically the Gillette's in St. Paul. For them, we host a Miracle Man Pageant once a year. Some of the other volunteer opportunities we offer are: Packing food at Feed My Starving Children, and Dreadwood Haunted Forest. Keep reading to learn more about our philanthropy opportunities.
Phi Mu - Zeta Sigma's main philanthropy is our Miracle Man competition. This event features men various organizations competing to win the title of "Miracle Man". The competition includes categories like fishbowl questions, formal wear, and a rep your organization section. Also featured at Miracle Man is a raffle for a number of different prizes. All proceeds of the event are donated to Gillete's Children's Hospital in St. Paul! This past year we raised over $1,500 dollars and cannot wait to watch this event continue to grow. Come help us raise money for the kids and have a great time!
We hope to see you there!
Feed My Starving Children
As a chapter, we try to organize multiple outings a semester to Feed My Starving Children. Here we help pack food for children across the world who suffer from malnutrition. It is an incredibly popular event among our sisters, and the Greek community on the River Falls Campus. Sometimes, we will pair up with other sororities and fraternities for this, as the more boxes we pack, the more children we can help feed.
Dreadwood Haunted Forest
Dreadwood haunted Forest is a favorite among our sisters. Our sisters volunteer an evening of our time to be the scare givers at this attraction. We go and are professionally made up, put into costumes and set loose in the dark woods to frighten guests. What makes this opportunity even more wonderful, is Dreadwood donates their proceeds to a number of charities, and asks those visiting to bring non perishable items to donate to a local food shelter.
