Convention Service Project

This year for our convention service project our team has chosen to recognize those fighting the brave battle against cancer, something that touches each and every one of us. As a team, it is something very close to our hearts. 

In light of this, we would like to highlight those who have fought and conquered cancer, as well as honoring those who lost their fight. This project will involve the collection of donations, the names of the men and women fighting cancer and messages of hope added to signage in the Beasley Coliseum concourse, and pink lapel ribbons.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Your Chapter Can Bring the Following to Convention:

●      One pink lapel ribbon for each attendee from your chapter to wear, including any chaperones, parents, or guests. We will wear these ribbons on our jacket lapels on Saturday to show support for all those fighting cancer. The ribbons may be worn on the inside of jackets on Thursday and Friday. 

●      The names of those who have fought cancer & messages of hope. We will place the names of these men and women, as well as the messages of hope, on signage that will be on the concourse at Beasley Coliseum. There will be different colored markers representing various types of cancer for the names and messages to be added (i.e., pink for breast cancer, purple for pancreatic, etc.).

●      Items that will be donated to local WA cancer care centers. We have been in contact with treatment centers and they have requested comfort items such as board games, decks of cards, puzzles, magazines for both men and women, knitting supplies, and things along those lines. After the convention, our team will drop these items off at locations in Spokane, Wenatchee, and Seattle. Here are more specific items that have been requested: 
-Books
-Magazines
-Crossword Puzzles
-Note/thank you cards
-New blankets
-Hats and caps
-Craft and knitting supplies
-Non-perishable foods
-New or like-new DVD’s
-Welcome bags (Ziploc bag filled with items like: paper towels, notepads and pens, small toiletry items, laundry detergent, note/thank you cards, tea or coffee, and granola bars)
-Infection prevention kits (ziplock bag filled with travel sized tissue, antibacterial hand wipes, and travel size hand sanitizer).

As a team, we will be actively using social media to promote our service project and reach as many members as we can.
