Make a Difference Day: One Day a Year to Lend a Hand
An annual day of community service, held on the fourth Saturday of October. There is a national Make-a-Difference-Day Organization, from which this concept derives. Projects usually occur on that day; however, it is also acceptable for a chapter’s project to span several days or even occur on a nearby date (say, within a week of that 4th Saturday). All chapters are encouraged to participate, as not only is it a rewarding day of service, but also of fellowship. The activity that can be done is open to each chapter’s prerogative; the day can be whatever your members make of it.

Financial Literacy: Education in a Financial Context
Many students attend college without having the full knowledge of what it takes to pay for college, nor how to maneuver through the financial aid application process, nor understanding the long-term financial cost of borrowing money. The objective of this project is for a chapter to host one or more financial education forums for students, most desirably in conjunction with the college’s Financial Aid Office; help students find the resources to pay for their education; explain the cost of borrowing money.
