In the past few years, ABE-GSA has tried to become more involved in the Purdue, West Lafayette, and Greater Lafayette Area communities and has provided our students/members with opportunities to engage with the community in service events.
We typically appoint a philanthropy chair by asking new students in the fall if they are interested, so that new students have an opportunity to get involved and participate in ABE-GSA Board Meetings.
Our 2014-2015 Philanthropy Chair, Salah Issa, organized several wonderful events, including our participation in Restaurant Hope. Salah has been involved with Restaurant Hope on more than one occasion, and you can read about those experiences here: RH_paper
Our 2015-2016 Philanthropy Chairs are Julia Burchell & Josept Revuelta
