Aaron, Abby, and Hannah kicked off our first fundraiser of the semester. Brown University Dining Service offers Group Staffing days for student groups at Brown to work a shift either at the Brown Stadium or The Gate to raise money for their group. We had the chance to work during the Brown vs. Cornell football game where Brown won 21 to 14. We worked on the visitors side and served an assortment of food and beverages to customers. Resources like this at Brown help OLEEP to continue its work at the Met while providing opportunities for mentor bonding and informal program discussions, not to mention the experiences of learning new skills like how to make change for $20, how to make a “maet ball sub,” and how to talk about Brown’s happiest students to Cornell parents!
We cannot wait to do this again on November 3, 2012. Look out for another update!
