Hello AED members!

As you plan for your last week of classes before Thanksgiving break, please keep the following updates in mind:

General Meeting #5

We will have our General Meeting #5 on Thursday, November 21st at 7pm. This meeting is our annual Homeless not Hopeless event! This event counts as a meeting credit, but is also a great opportunity to earn your remaining service hours, social credit, and fundraising credit. You will only receive a social credit if you make a blanket. A fundraiser credit will only be given if you provide a receipt of the following items donated (minimum purchase of $5).

You can only get a max of 2 hours for each item (only exception is deodorant), and can receive up to 5 service hours by donating the following items:

  • Deodorant- 3 for one hour (No Speed Stick brand since many residents are allergic)
  • Toothpaste- 5 for one hour
  • Lotion- 7 for one hour (travel size)
  • Soap- 12 bars of soap for one hour
  • Shampoo- 5 for one hour (travel size)
  • Dental floss picks- 5 for one hour (not string floss)
