On Saturday, September 25th, from 9:00am until 12:00pm, over 14,000 volunteers from all over Los Angeles will take action to rid our beaches and inland waterways of unsightly and harmful debris. -healthebay.org
As a fraternity we will also be volunteering and offering a few hours of our Saturday morning to help out. We are registered for costal cleanup at Will Rogers State Beach. Check in Time will be 9:00am so we will need to arrive at around 8:30am. We will be meeting/leaving Northridge from our rendezvous location (which is TBA) at 7:30am.
Everyone who decides to go must sign a liability waiver. It will be provided during this Thursday’s meeting. This is all it takes to register. There will also be free parking and we will be organizing a car pool to avoid taking so many cars. Once we are at the event all of the supplies that we need will be provided to us and we will also be given a brief introduction on costal cleaning. More information will be provided during the meeting.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to have a bonfire, but we will be organizing something for everyone to do after the event. More than likely it will be lunch which will be on a self-pay basis. Please email Ezequiel no later than Wednesday at midnight to let him know if you will or will not be able to make it to the event. He needs a headcount of the people that will be attending.
CHLA Blood Drive is coming up Thursday September 9th from 10am-2pm. We are hosting it for CHLA and it will be set up in between the Matador Bookstore Complex and Manzanita Hall. If you are making Rush announcements, make sure to mention the Blood Drive too! Any questions on the above should be directed to Bianca or Robbie. And don’t forget to start wearing your purple and ivory to represent PhiDE and any PhiDE gear you have - have fun with it!
Update: Andrew is currently making a list of people who can help out during the Blood Drive. As of this writing, spots available are in half-hour increments starting at 1:00pm through 3:30pm. Please e-mail him as soon as you can.
Update 2: The blood drive has been canceled due to legal paperwork on the end of CHLA and the University. There is a possibility of getting this event rescheduled for November - more information will be posted as it becomes available.
