The Southeast Branch outreach program is run primarily by the Younger Member Group’s Outreach chair. The group has grown so much that the Younger Member Group often has co-chairs to keep the program running smoothly. While the program is set up by the Younger Member Group, participation by those over the age of 35 is highly encouraged.

Some of the programs offered include:

  • Work Days for Habitat for Humanity
  • A food drive for Hunger Task Force
  • Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army
  • Boy Scout and Girl Scout activities
  • Earth Day Clean-ups
  • K-12 classroom visits (with age appropriate activities)
  • MATHCOUNTS Competition
  • Future Cities Competition
  • Rube Goldberg Competition

In the past several years our Younger Member Group has won numerous awards for their work in our community and would like to thank all in the Southeast Branch that have made it possible.

We look forward to many more years of success with our programs and hope to see new faces at our future events. Please see the events page for our upcoming outreach events.
