The event at the Phail Wynn Jr. Center was a philanthropy event to package 100,000 meals by hand for the needy in Durham. IFC joined in for this awesome initiative by providing ~200 members in a concerted effort to make an impact on MLK Day. This opportunity usually does not exist for us as MLK Day is Bids Day for IFC chapters. 

The week delay on the Spring semester allowed a unique chance to reach out as an organization. All of our chapters are also engaged in their own philanthropic initiatives on campus, ranging from work at the Ronald McDonald House to supporting efforts to end adolescent AIDS.

Residence Life and Duke Recycling are working together to gather those unwanted, end of year items that students no longer need but still have use to others.

Arwen Buchholz of Duke Recycle said that multiple bins will be set up in residence halls throughout campus, and collection pickups are made regularly. The contents are going to support three different local organizations. Durham Rescue Mission is collecting materials from West Campus; the Salvation Army is collecting from East Campus; and Goodwill is collecting from Central Campus.

Non-perishable items donated by students include clothing, shoes, office supplies, kitchen items, area rugs, and other items, Buchholz said, adding that one of the oddest donations they ever received was 10 pairs of size 18 shoes from Duke Athletics.
