Committed to Service

As Community Service Chair for the Eta Delta Chi chapter of Chi Sigma Iota (International and professional academic honor society for counseling students) one of my goals beginning this position was to plan a group community service event. One of the challenges entering this role during a year like no other, when we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, is being in groups became a challenge. Balancing a desire to get as many members actively involved in community service while building chapter cohesion was muddled with wanting to also ensure safety guidelines were being followed to the best of our ability.

I connected with The Branch of Nashville and was very fortunate to be able to put together a group volunteer event with this organization that maintained adherence to safety guidelines while providing an opportunity for group members to build cohesion through service to our community. While operating on a limited number of spots, group members were able to come together and serve alongside The Branch of Nashville.

The Branch of Nashville works towards fighting food insecurity in the middle Tennessee area through its food pantry.Each month, guests in need are able to take home 115 lbs of food in addition to personal hygiene and household products each month. The Branch also offers ESL classes to community members. When our group volunteered we partook in a variety of tasks including food sorting, unloading new relievers, and preparing food distribution bags. This is a wonderful organization providing a great service to individuals and families. I encourage anyone interested in volunteering to reach out to The Branch of Nashville here.

All my love,
