Our national philanthropy is Domestic Violence Awareness. Locally we work with Mid Valley Women's Crisis Services. We work to both raise awareness about domestic violence and to raise money to benefit the Mid Valley organization. We work with them in a variety of ways, from having women attend 50+ hour training sessions and volunteer for overnight crisis hotline shifts, to having women volunteer in their offices. We also have the privilege to go weekly to their women's shelter, to help with organizing donations and keeping everything accessible to the women. Aside from helping Mid Valley Women's Crisis Services both through fundraising and by donating our time, we work to improve the culture of our campus through tabling and raising awareness.
