National Day of Service
March 22nd – March 26th

GBP National Day of Service

The Gamma Beta Phi Society is pleased to announce our first annual “National Day of Service.” As a national scholastic and philanthropic organization, we encourage our bright and ambitious scholars to give back to their local communities. This nationwide, unified endeavor will provide Gamma Beta Phi with a chance to leave a lasting impact on hundreds of local communities across the nation simultaneously.  In doing so, we will continue our national tradition of promote scholarship, service, and character development, as we provide assistance to those in need. 

Dates and Logistics:

During the week of March 22nd, we are encouraging all members to spend a few hours completing at least one community service task.  Although titled a “National Day of Service,” we are providing members with a five-day window to identify a community service activity within their community.  We understand that our members are busy balancing school, work, leadership opportunities, family obligations and more! As such, we hope that each member will find a few hours during that week to complete one community service project that speaks to them, as we do the same on a regional and national level! 

National Service Day T-Shirts:

In an effort to display national unity, we are encouraging ALL student members, Chapter Officers, Chapter Advisors, and alumni/professional members across the country to order a “2021 National Day of Service T-shirt.”  Wear your customized T-shirt proudly as you complete your community service project during the week of March 22nd, and post your pictures or videos on social media with our special hashtag during that particular week.  As one united movement, we are working together to uplift those around us!  Please click HERE to order a customized T-shirt. The deadline to order your customized T-shirt is Thursday, March 3rd.

Please Note: All shirt orders will be shipped out during the week of March 15th. 

Highlighting Your Service:

As you complete your community service projects, either individually or with other members, we ask that you e-mail any photos and videos to National Headquarters at [email protected], OR you can post your videos and pictures to your social media platforms with the customized hashtag #GBPServiceDay. We look forward to seeing our members across the United States come together during that week to provide a lending hand to others in their community. 

Community Service Ideas and COVID-19:

Due to the ramifications of COVID-19, we are encouraging all members to be cautious as they complete their community service tasks.  We recommend that all stakeholders take creative approaches to service, in order to ensure a big impact while promoting safety and necessary precautions.  Potential community service tasks can include:

  • Providing virtual tutoring to students in need
  • Cleaning up local parks and rivers
  • Donating clothing to local shelters
  • Donating canned goods to local food banks
  • Creating and distributing hand-written cards and care packages to local nurses, doctors, fire fighters, nursing home staff, police officers, educators, grocery store workers, and anyone else working on the front lines during the global pandemic

You are more than welcome to get as creative as you desire! If you need assistance identifying a safe community service project (either individually or with other members), please feel free to contact National Headquarters at [email protected]
