There is a super exciting opportunity that is going to be taking place at SMU in November! It is the Southwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (SWACURH)! This conference is a place where people from all different states around Texas get together and discuss RHA (Residence Hall Association) and share ideas about different programs that can be implemented in the residence halls. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer at this super awesome, amazing conference and it is a great way to learn how you can make SMU better through the residence halls!
The part that I am really pumped for is our philanthropy project! We are working
with AMillionThanks.org which is an organization that sends letters to the military whether they are active, reserve or veterans! “A Million Thanks is a year-round campaign to show our appreciation for our U.S. Military Men and Women, past and present, for
their sacrifices, dedication, and service to our country through our letters, emails, cards, and prayers.” The military men and women really appreciate it when they receive letters and will often reply back! The letters that we will be sending out in November will get to the troops right before Christmas and they will have a small piece of home to cherish during the holiday season! If you would like to participate, you can write a letter and send it to:
A Million Thanks
17853 Santiago Blvd. #107-355
Villa Park, CA 92861
For the letters there can be no edible items, loose glitter, confetti or anything that is not attached to the letter or card. Remember to only send positive messages and be creative! The military loves it when you say a little bit about yourself and thank them for their service!
