East Carolina University. A P i rat e ’s G uide to Service Tomorrow starts here. A publication of the Volunteer and Service-Learning Center Leadership Positions in the VSLC The Volunteer and Service-Learning Center hosts events and programs each year with the help of dozens of student leaders who recruit blood donors, cook meals, organize more than 100 Pen Friends, and lead reflections at large, one-time service events. We’re recruiting next year’s leaders right now, and we need you! VSLC leadership positions are a great way to build your resume, improve your communication skills, and gain awareness of community and social issues. Contact the VSLC today for more information. Fairytale Boutique Dress Drive Do you have a prom or bridesmaid gown hanging in your closet? Maybe you have not one gown, but several that have been gathering dust and taking up valuable space for a year or more? This is the case for many women—we keep formal gowns in the hope that we might wear them again. But we sometimes keep them for so long that they go out of style, or “shrink.” The Fairytale Boutique can help you clean our your closet and give those gowns renewed life! Open positions include, but are not limited to: Campus Kitchen Leadership Team (CKLT) CKLT members recruit volunteers for the Campus Kitchen at ECU, and lead cooking and delivery shifts. Peer Counselors Peer Counselors help with the day-to-day operations of the VSLC and large, one-time service events like the MLK Day Challenge and the Million Meal Event. T.R.I.P.S. Leaders T.R.I.P.S. leaders plan and implement fall and spring break service trips. Million Meal Event Leaders (MMEL) MMEL’s keep volunteers at the Million Meal event on task to reach our goal of packaging 200,000 meals. The Fairytale Boutique collects new and gently used prom and formal gowns from 2005 to the present, and gives them away free-of-charge to young women in eastern North Carolina who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend prom. The VSLC is currently collecting gowns for the 2011 Fairytale Boutique. We need more than 250 gowns in all colors, shapes and sizes. So ladies, pull out those garment bags (or maybe the ball of taffeta tucked not so carefully into a drawer) and drop it off in the Old Cafeteria Complex. Your donation is tax-deductible, and could make a lucky young woman feel like Cinderella for one magical night. The Fairytale Boutique also collects new and gently used dress shoes, jewelry, and unopened make-up. The dress drive will continue through fall 2010.
