In service to the local community, the Saginaw Alumnae Chapter’s (SAC) May Week Committee, in collaboration with several Chapter committees, will host a series of community service events this month. May Week was created in 1920 to highlight academic and professional achievements that emphasize the importance of higher education in the community, particularly for Black women.
Public Service Project – Saginaw Rescue Mission
SAC’s May Week line up kicked off with a volunteer effort at the Saginaw Rescue Mission, where sorors helped organize donations in the mission’s Impact Design Center. This event occurred Saturday, May 14.
Donations organized include kitchen, window, laundry, cleaning, and bathroom products used to furnish the homes of program participants. Sorors also provided donations to the center and, while on site, toured the mission’s main facility. While volunteering, sorors received information on the center’s services and collaborations with other community organizations and were able to view first-hand facility upgrades which are currently underway.
