For those of you new to the organization, this should help you to understand Rake-a-thon, and the roll of the coalition in the fundraiser. To start off, rake-a-thon is our annual fall fundraiser, which helps us fund builds and events for the year, as well as provide donations for Habitat. We begin in late October/early November by canvasing Chestnut Hill (a neighborhood nearby) and signing up residents who would like us to rake their lawns at a future date. This is a combined effort with UPenn and Temple, because it is such a long event it is great to have the efforts of all 3 schools. This year, UPenn is in charge of the logistics of the event, but we are all participating equally. All the days we will be flyering/raking are up on the signup page and we need a ton of volunteers.
This weekend is the last weekend of flyering,. Drexel is responsible for Saturday, and Sunday we will have the help of Temple. This is an awesome opportunity to get involved, meet other students and take a walk. Also, this event qualifies as service hours if you are in need of completing them for your freshman Univ. 101 class or a frat/sorority, etc.
If there are any further questions, feel free to send an email! (kb353). I hope to see many of you at the events this coming weekend and throughout Nov/Dec.
