Convention community service event

We will be having a competition between chapters to bring in items, worth various points, to assist a local center for abused women, the Caring Place. The chapter with the highest amount of points wins!

The Caring Place is a center that serves Marion County and many of the surrounding counties. They are always in need of supplies and money. Women and children come to the center are protected through anonymity to get away from the abuse. They may stay there a while or short time to get away from the abuser.
