Panhellenic Council

Circle of Sisterhood Week

From March 5th-8th, women from the Panhellenic Council participated in a week of service and philanthropy for Circle of Sisterhood: an organization that works to break down education barriers for women and girls around the world. Throughout the week, over $8000 was raised for the organization through various events and fundraisers held on campus. Also during the week, women participated in a letter writing campaign in which over 200 letters were sent out to family, friends, and community members to further solicit donations. A hygiene supply drive for the YWCA was also conducted throughout the week! Through partnering with the Center for Leadership and Service, almost 100 women conducted service around the Knoxville community at the Susan G. Komen Center, Florence Crittenton, YWCA, and Pond Gap Elementary, totaling in almost 200 hours of service. To cap off the week, around 25 women went to the YWCA Phyllis Wheatley Center to help clean the facility and engage with the young women and men there. The Panhellenic community enjoyed being active in the local community, and empowering women just as Circle of Sisterhood does. “We are excited to allocate the funds raised towards supplies and any other needs for the school build in Senegal; representatives from the Panhellenic community will be traveling there this June to help break ground on the school we funded. We are proud of their commitment to the organization, and are excited to continue making an impact in our own community and across the globe!”
