There were 88 volunteers in total that helped to fill one roll off dumpster. I Love a Clean San Diego thanks all of the volunteers. Another clean up will take place December 6th.

 

III.               Book Drive

 

We have been collecting books for the book drive in the collection bins on campus. Many of the books we have been receiving do not meet the criteria. Skyline Church is having a book drive this week and the books that we are not able to turn into Better World Books may be turned in at the church.

Our chapter won the pinnicle award and a scholarship to the convention in Grape Vine, Texas in April. The scholarship is for one student’s registration. Additional expenses will include room and board for both the advisor and student attending, as well as registration for the advisor attending. We would like to send a member from our chapter that will be involved next year and will be able to pass down the information they have received.
