George Mason’s Greek community has been nominated for the 2000 Fairfax County Volunteer Service Award, and the winner is announced this morning at a breakfast ceremony at the Tysons Corner Hilton featuring General Colin Powell as the keynote speaker.

George Mason’s 16 fraternities and 10 sororities combined forces last semester to collect more than 25 boxes of clothes and shoes for North Carolina flood victims. Included in the clothing drive was a university-wide advertising campaign using word of mouth, flyers, e-mail, and posters. Working with AT&T, the students were able to coordinate the delivery of the clothes in a timely manner.

Representing George Mason at the banquet are Kimberly Branch, assistant director of Student Organizations, Activities, and Programs; Samantha Davis, National Panhellenic Council president; Joshua Cataldo, Interfraternity Council president; and Laura Krebill, Panhellenic Council president.

The Fairfax County Volunteer Service Awards were established in 1993 by the Volunteer Center of Fairfax County, Inc., to honor outstanding citizens, organizations, and corporations who give time and service to the community.
