Our Chapter has a rich history of philanthropic service and a diverse array of activities and programs to engage our members in community service initiatives. Our aim is to bring our members together towards the common cause of helping others, making a positive impact in the community.
Golden Key offers numerous diverse and engaging great Service events and initiatives to be a part of including volunteering with Taste of Edmonton, Disney on Ice, and Outrun the Stigma Awareness Run to name a few. We also organized a Food Bank Drive donating to the U of A Campus Food Bank, as well as Toothbrushes for Toddlers, an initiative to donate toothbrushes to children in need. This past February we also organized a successful Pints for Puppies event, where students came out for a night to de-stress from finals and all ticket sales went towards the Edmonton Humane Society
By taking advantage of the amazing volunteering opportunities available to you in Golden Key, you can become a stronger leader. We have highlighted some of our most successful Service events below!
