On campus each semester, Saint Louis University hosts multiple days of service including Make a Difference Day in the fall and Showers of Service in the spring. Gamma Phi Beta always enjoys getting a team together for sisterhood bonding all while doing a little good for our community. Not only is participating in these events fun, but also gives us an opportunity to be women for others.
It is also not uncommon to see Gamma Phi Betas at other fraternity and sorority philanthropic events. For example, Gamma Phi Beta supports Kappa Delta’s Kuts for Confidence where we have the opportunity to donate our hair to women who are undergoing radiation or chemotherapy. Each year multiple Gamma Phi Betas cut their hair in support of such an important cause that hits us all very close to home.
Along with that, Gamma Phi Beta loves participating in Relay for Life each spring. Unfortunately, the constant battle of cancer is something that the Gamma Tau chapter has the first-hand experience with. Remembering and recognizing the struggles of two of our members, Gamma Phi Beta looks to be a support system in any way possible. This past spring, Gamma Phi Beta was proud to be one of the top 3 teams for fundraising and participation on campus. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society in hopes of finding a cure not only for our fallen sisters but also for our current and future generation. Gamma Phi Beta is looking to build strong girls in a cancer free world.
While these days of service are without a doubt extremely important and vital to raising awareness, Gamma Phi Beta looks to dig deeper into constant ongoing service. Through our interactive philanthropy and service on and off campus, we are giving more than just one day of our lives but devoting our entire lives to being
women for others.
