Zeta Chapter's Philanthropy

American Cancer Society

ABOUT

More than one million people in the United States get cancer each year. Whether you have cancer or are close to someone who does, it is a toll on everybody. We at the Zeta chapter of DEM devote or philanthropic efforts to the American Cancer Society. We participate in events such as making strides for breast cancer, relay for life, and volunteering at Give Kids the World. Join us on March 18, 2016 as we come together as a fraternity, a school, and a community to restore hope in millions of people!

Our National Philanthropy

Camp Dragonfly Forest

ABOUT

This camp is specifically designed for children with Autism and Medical Needs, and allows them to safely enjoy the activities of a “traditional” camp. Between early morning swims and evening campfires, children whose lives are disrupted by their illness or disorder are transformed into just “kids.” They have a chance to be with others coping with the same illness or condition and realize that they are not alone. Hugs are part of the daily dietary requirements at Dragonfly Forest. The campers develop special relationships with each other and with their counselors.

As a national philanthropy for this organization much of our fundraising profits goes towards the funding of Dragonfly Forest. Our members participate in fundraising for this non-profit organization both here at the alpha chapter and nationally, in an effort to give the children the best childhood possible. Members also participate individually as camp counselors at camp dragonfly forest to get a more hands-on and impact experience.
