2. Campus or community projects, activities, or events:

Community project partnering with a local agency who works with new mothers. We raised funds in the community then purchased items to donate to the Storks Nest, an incentive program with the goal of improving the overall health of pregnant women and their babies. The items purchased went to their Store which could then be "purchased" through the incentive program by expectant/new mothers.

3. Tentative plans for next year

At this point, we would like to do a fall philanthropy and a spring philanthropy if possible. We have a complete roster of officers so we would like to continue to grow the communications chair position and as well as the secretary positions as they have been under utilized in the past.
