Make a Splash with AST
Our sisters hosted Alpha Sigma Tau's first philanthropy event of the semester, during Oakland University's Grizz Fest. All proceeds went to our new national philanthropy, Women's Wellness Initiative and our local philanthropy, Haven. We are so excited to kick this semester off with a splash!
Fleece and Thank You
Oakland Universities Alpha Sigma Tau chapter teamed up with Fleece and Thank you to make over 30 blankets for sick children. Fleece and Thank you is an incredible locally started foundation giving back to children when they need it the most. AST women know that giving back is always important especially when it comes to children. We were happy to pair with this incredible foundation to do our part in brightening a child’s day. We look forward to our next collaboration with Fleece and Thank you.
Every year, the Delta Tau chapter gets together with the local alumnae and packs boxes for Focus Hope in Detroit. This organization donates its food boxes to the homeless and those less privledged. This last year, we packed over 2,000 boxes that were given out. It is a great chance to meet our alumnae and make a difference in the community!
Smash your Finals with AST
For the first time Alpha Sigma Tau Delta Tau hosted an end of the year philanthropy event by the clock tower at Oakland University. Sisters volunteered to have water balloons thrown at them all in the name of philanthropy. Our chapter donated all of the money raised to Alzheimer’s awareness. We believe there’s never too much fun to be had when it comes to philanthropy.
Other Service Events
Another annual service project that Alpha Sigma Tau does is to participate in the Center for Student Activities' Make a Difference Day and MLK Day of Service.
Our sisters also volunteer on Oakland's campus! Our sisters volunteer every year at Freshman Move-in, to help all the new students move into the residence halls. Alpha Sigma Taus also volunteer at Orientation Part 2 which helps incoming students learn more about their major that they are going into as well as Jump Start, to further help new students.
Annual Philanthropy: Dancing with the Taus
Alpha Sigma Tau hosted our first ever dancing with the Taus on April 6th. The money raised will go towards our local philanthropy Haven and our national philanthropy the pine mountain settlement school. We had over 150 people attend our event raising over $1500 for our philanthropies. The night was filled with dancing, commentary, prizes and philanthropy.
