A volunteer at the Louis Braille School once told us, “it’s good to give help with our hands. We’re not meant to give only with money.”
Four members of the Seattle Area Delta Gamma Alumnae Group (SADG) who take those words to heart came to the school on July 7th. They were here to tidy up the ever changing appearance of our front parking lot and rear play area in time for the garage sale fundraiser scheduled for July 11th.
Pictured left to right are Lisa Paulsen, Rachel Rabidoux, Danielle Kelsey, and Andrea Cirignano gripping the tools of beautification.
They spent a good two hours sweeping and weeding, making the grounds attractive for the upcoming fundraiser.
The SADG mission “is to promote friendship and to ‘Do Good’ within our communities.”
Alumnae and collegiate sorority members have helped the Louis Braille School in additional ways that include making tactile art for the students, helping to organize the school library, and assisting with the school’s annual benefit auction.
The four alumnae who worked here on July 7th clearly enjoyed being around each other.
“Our goal as a sorority alumnae group is to spend quality time together while also helping the community around us!,”said Lisa Paulsen, SADG’s Vice-President of Programming.
“We appreciate the opportunity to give back [to the community] and hope that we can continue our partnership with Louis Braille.”
Danielle Kelsey, SADG’s Vice-President of the Foundation, said alumnae members will return in October to help remove fallen leaves.
The alumnae’s deeds match the words of their mission.
Everyone at the Louis Braille School says “Thank you!” to Lisa, Rachel, Danielle, Andrea, and all the members of SADG.
