The Painted Turtle Camp

This past summer our VP of philanthropy traveled to California to volunteer at The Painted Turtle Camp to help kids in need have the best experience they can. Jamie Alexander shared some words about her experience. “The painted turtle camp was one of the best experiences. I learned so much from learning to work with kids to viewing the world differently. I loved being the one to bring joy, laughter, and smiles to the campers. When I volunteered with the painted turtle, I became apart of a family who is caring, supportive, and compassionate who all have the same goal: to make a difference in the lives of the campers.” This experience changed Jamie not only as a person but as the VP of Philanthropy. It made her realize how much she impacted the lives of the children there and is an experience she will cherish forever. We are so proud of Jamie and all that she’s accomplished and wish her luck on her next visit to The Painted Turtle Camp next summer!

Gamma Alpha Chapter (Baldwin Wallace University) donates to feed more than 380 people at outreach center

The Gamma Alpha Chapter's (Baldwin Wallace University) Philanthropy Chairman used her past community service experiences to organize a semester-long food drive within the chapter.

She arranged the food drive with the local Berea Community Outreach Center, which works to "supply a family in need with three full meals for three full days once per month" (Berea Community Outreach).

Throughout the 10-week food drive, chapter members collected 200 non-perishable food items to donate the Outreach Center. "Our efforts will help to feed the 381 people that will come to Berea Community Outreach in the next month for meals," said Madison O'Callaghan, LAMP Editor.

Gamma Alpha Chapter (Baldwin Wallace University) is transformed by its philanthropy experience

This October, the Gamma Alpha Chapter hosted its most successful philanthropy event to date -- the second annual Pink on the Green Golf Outing.

Karly Alexander Vice President of Philanthropy, has gone above and beyond fulfilling her duties for the second year in a row. She re-vamped the area of philanthropy and created the Golf Outing for the chapter's Fall Philanthropy Event.

Karly believed that this event had the potential to raise more money for the Starkey Hearing Foundation than past endeavors. "With the rest of our chapter on her side, we were able to raise $5,000 from this outing our first year!" said Lindsey Poyar, LAMP Editor. "This year, Karly had even higher goals set for her sisters and pushed us to try to double what we raise. From Karly's continuous encouragement and from the help of all of our sisters, we were able to raise $9,000 this October."

When asked to reflect on her experience, Karly shared, "Being able to share our amazing philanthropy with our family and friends is the best part. I have grown so much as a person and I can thank my chapter, our philanthropy of speech and hearing, and the Starkey Hearing Foundation, for allowing me to see the bigger picture that life has to offer."

Gamma Alpha Chapter (Baldwin Wallace University) raises $5,100 for The Painted Turtle camp
March 25, 2016

Ashly Dickman, a member of the Gamma Alpha Chapter at Baldwin Wallace University, saw firsthand the magic of The Painted Turtle camp, Delta Zeta's national service project. She said of her volunteer work there, "It was the best experience I have had during my time as an undergrad! The children at the camp are so great and it feels good to know that Delta Zeta is making such a big difference."

Ashly's experience inspired her Gamma Alpha sisters to even more dedication to this project, motivating them to support the camp. Karly Alexander, Philanthropy Chairman, was inspired to plan a brand new philanthropy event, the Pink on the Green Golf Outing. The event raised $5,100, more than Karly anticipated for a first-time event.
