Chapter Philanthropy

The Gamma Upsilon chapter has two main philanthropies that are close to our hearts: Reading is Fundamental, and The Canadian Cancer Society.  We are so proud to have two weekly philanthropy events. Every Tuesday our sisters volunteer at a nearby Soup Kitchen. We are so dedicated to providing these hot meals for those in need all while enjoying time with our sisters by our side. Every Friday our sisters volunteer at the local elementary school, where we help the third grade class improve their reading while also adding some fun to both their day and ours! 

We have many philanthropy events throughout the year benefitting The Canadian Cancer Society, first our annual participation in the CIBC Run for the Cure, in which we raised over 8000$ this year alone, earning us the award for Top Fundraising Women's Team. We host our two main annual events: Desserts For A Cure bake sale in the fall, and Kappa Kourtside in the spring.

In addition to our annual events, this year we participated in a food drive for the AMS food bank, winning most donated items and hosted a clothing drive along with Sigma Chi for the Covenant House in which we donated over 550 articles of clothing.

Having fun while supporting causes in our communities and close to our hearts is such an important part of our chapter and sisterhood.
