BUILDING STRONG GIRLS
Our philanthropic mission is to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in women. We work towards fulfilling our mission every single day. What we focus on is building strong girls which goes hand in hand with our philanthropy, girls on the run.
This mission does not just address an existing challenge - we
are building strong girls to proactively provide opportunities for a lifetime of success by inspiring the young women of tomorrow. As girls we have to build each other up and never stop.
We are who we are today because we had someone in our lives who taught us what it means to be a strong girl. Working with these girls on the run chapters provides them with resources and strong female role models we all need in our lives. A question we often ask in Gamma Phi is "Who is a women that inspires you?" We strive to be role models and inspire young girls with these leadership skills so they know girls can do anything and they are meant to be strong!
A NOTE FROM OUR PHILANTHROPY CHAIR
"Philanthropy is something that I hold near and dear to my heart and I am so lucky to have found a home in a sorority that values service as well. Labor, one of our core values, is carried out through our work with, Girls on the Run. It is important to serve as role models for our younger generations and to build strong women of character."
GIRLS ON THE RUN
Girls On The Run is an organization that is integrated into elementary and middle schools as an after school activity. The girls who sign up for Girls On The Run participate in learning about physical fitness, healthy lifestyle choices, tutoring and mentoring and empowerment all while training for a 5K race at the end of the eight week program.
At the Epsilon Lambda Chapter, we build strong girls by participating in a variety of organizations. We volunteer with our local Girls on the Run Chapter in Birmingham and host multiple fundraisers throughout the year, ranging from cook outs to carnation sales to percentage days at local businesses, in support of our philanthropic mission to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls.
Each year we host Moonball which is either a kickball, volleyball, or basketball tournament. It is also one of our biggest philanthropy events of the year! This past year, we held a basketball tournament, in which we raised money for Girls on the Run with different organizations on campus participating! We have so much fun coaching our teams and then putting them up for the ultimate showdown to crown our Moonball champs!
THE CARNATION SALE
Each year on or around Valentine's Day, we host our annual Carnation Sale! We set up multiple tables around campus to sell carnation flowers to students, staff, and others around campus! All of the money raised goes to our local chapter of Girls onn the Run. This is such a fun event for our sisters to work together to spread love on Valentine's Day, and spread the message of building strong girls!
