Seminoles Serving from Coast-to-Coast

SSDThe Fifth Annual Seminole Service Day was a great success! This year we had close to 50 clubs and chapters participate in the FSU Alumni Association’s coordinated day of community service. This would not be possible without great leadership and planning on the part of our Seminole Clubs and Chapters.

Members of the FSU community from all over the country came together to help make their neighborhoods a better place while wearing the garnet and gold. Seminole Service Day projects ranged from serving food in soup kitchens and food banks, building homes, cleaning up high schools and beaches, volunteering with the Salvation Army and Ronald McDonald Charities, to providing support to children and animals, and so much more.

Seminole Service Day 2016

seminole-service-day-club-15-eblast[12]There’s nothing wrong with getting your hands a little dirty every once in a while! By planning hands-on community service projects you are able to give back to your community in a meaningful way and make a significant impact on the people you serve.

Seminole Service Day projects are a great way to get non-club members involved with your club. Members can invite friends and family for extra hands. Your club can ask local retailers to donate supplies, such as paint, hardware and tools. This helps to promote local business and promote your local Seminole Club®—while making a difference in the community.

We hope that you have begun planning meaningful service day projects and are getting excited to gather with fellow Seminoles to give the greatest gift of all—your time. Continue reading
