Community Engagement:

Each year, our chapter participates in the National Outreach Program with a different focus each year. We also collect “pop top” can lids that will personally deliver to one of the many Ronald McDonald House Charity Centers. In addition we volunteer in our community at places such as the Madison Public Library and local Madison City Nursing Homes. We are also hoping to expand our volunteer opportunities in the Huntsville area by working with agencies such as CASA, Girls Inc., Christmas Charities, and the Huntsville Child Care Center starting this semester!
