For a second year, FIJI hosted a pre-Christmas dinner for homeless women. Four ladies from the local women’s shelter and 12 FIJI brothers enjoyed the meal at the house, with food provided by FIJI, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Campus Cooks, and cooked by Lambda’s Campus Cooks Chef Christina Hayes. The chapter hopes to continue this tradition.

The first annual Thanksgiving dinner was held for brothers who couldn’t return home and for other international students on campus. A broad selection of international dishes was prepared on a day when all university facilities are closed. Sixty-five people attended, including 31 freshmen! The chapter hopes to continue this tradition as well. Graduate brothers are encouraged to attend in future years. 

Heartfelt thanks again to Jennifer and Daylon Weddle for organizing both of these wonderful outreach experiences!
