  • The Big Event registration closes at 5pm this Wednesday, March 18. We already have 13 people signed up for the SPHA team! Yay! There is still time to sign up tonight and tomorrow!
  • Special Olympics is Saturday, April 25th. Sign up to work in the Olympic Village! “The Olympic Village is a fun little area where athletes can make crafts, play yard games, hang out with friends, and more!” Here is the  url to the GoogleDoc:


  • Have a suggestion on a potential organization to ask to be our official philanthropy! We will be taking suggestions this week and voting on the top two organizations to approach with our offer next meeting. We want to choose a philanthropy that we can give our volunteer time to on a regular basis rather than an organization to fundraise for.
  • Just a clarification on service hour requirements: Service hours must be completed in Adair County and may not be submitted if the same hours are logged for another organization. That being said, you may, and are even encouraged,  to use opportunities that you learn about through other organizations and departments for your service hours. Don’t forget that TruService is a great resource for finding service hours!

Fundraising- Gillian Mwangi gwm7612@truman.edu

  • The fundraiser that was held about 2 weeks ago went great! Sold most of the shirts and raised around 30 dollars which was awesome thank you to everyone who worked the table.
    • I might set up another date to sell the rest of the t-shirts.
  • Meanwhile, new apparel is being designed by the fundraising committee  and will hopefully be finished and ordered this week.
    • So keep an eye out for an email because i will need workers again for our next fundraiser.
