The Panhellenic Association is proud to partner with the Center for Community Engagement in support of the Zone 1 Blitz. Our hope is that we can positively impact the Springfield community with our time, our talents, and our philanthropic donations.
Many of Missouri State University’s sororities support local and national philanthropies that help families battling cancer, premature babies, children who are hard of hearing, promote physical activities for children, children with developmental delays, Alzheimer’s, and adults as they age. Missouri State University’s Panhellenic organizations are supporting every stage of life within families. Because of this, The Panhellenic Association is working to encourage its sororities to serve the families living in Zone 1 in any capacity they are able.
This service may include women babysitting for families attending a session at the Drew Lewis Foundation. Every Thursday at the Drew Lewis Foundation, the Grant Beach Neighborhood can take classes learning about pregnancy and how to sew. Or, this service may include donating food to people and families in areas of Zone 1 who are unable to afford food or afford the transportation to a market.
Ultimately, the goal of the Panhellenic Association is to assist the Center for Community Engagement in any capacity needed. We are proud to serve the Springfield community and Zone 1. You can find more information about the Zone 1 Bear Blitz here.
