Community Service Chair, Fall 2020
My name is Kayla Takakura. I am a senior and look forward to serving as the Fall Community Service Chair. Community service is something I hold close to my heart as I participated in 4-H and its community service events for over 15 years of my life including volunteering at animal shelters, regular beach clean-ups and donating to or helping out at local animal shelters.These opportunities have allowed me to not only give back to my community but have instilled lifelong values of the importance of strong community service engagement.
Right now a lot is uncertain due to the pandemic, but nevertheless, I want to still find ways for our organization to support important causes locally or possibly even globally. A lot of our traditional large events such as Relay for Life may not be possible this semester but I have been doing some research on ways we could still do community service virtually.
One idea I have is creating care packages for local homeless shelters. Another idea is to make blankets for children in hospitals or get well cards for people going through chemotherapy. I could also reach out to the American Red Cross with the idea Deltas could potentially be digital advocates to try and generate donations. These are all projects we could do on our own at home if needed.
I am confident I will be able to find fun and engaging ways for the women in Delta to participate in community service projects during these unusual times.
I am really looking forward to a fun semester as Delta’s Community Service Chair!
Serving the Local Community and Beyond
Members of the Greek Community are required to complete 10 hours of community service each semester they are active in their chapter. The Greek Community participates in many All Greek Service efforts including collecting tabs for the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House Charity and works in conjunction with the Community Service and Learning Office to maintain the Sylvan Park Rose Garden each semester.
Each spring, the Greek Community comes together to support the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House Pull Tab collection. This event happens every Spring (usually in late April-early May). Please contact the Director of Greek Life for more information 909-748-8284.
