Lamda Chi Alpha - Sweet Springs June Volunteer Spotlight

Current residence: San Luis Obispo

Volunteer since:  Winter of 2011

What made you decide to start volunteering at Sweet Springs?  
The best kinds of groups to volunteer for are the ones that value community. When we volunteer with Sweet Springs for the first time, we felt like we were working with family. Planting trees and removing invasive species with Sweet Springs has opened doors to various community members something we rarely don’t frequently get from other organizations.

What keeps you coming back?
Working with various members of the community and being able to see our hard work make a significant difference in the environment keeps encouraging our fraternity to come back.

What has been your most memorable experience?
Helping to plant trees was a tough project. It took a solid team of 15 to plant the trees well, but we look forward to see how much it has grown each quarter.

Do you have any words of wisdom for first-time volunteers?
Don't be afraid to get dirty, that’s when you have the most fun.

What do you do when you're not volunteering?  
When we aren’t volunteering, we are pursuing our academic goals, bettering our house in athletics and being active in the Cal Poly community. Going to the football games and sporting events is big to our brotherhood as well.
