Q Tip: Put Your Blessings in Bags

One of the ways to live the Quinquennial’s “Reviving Our Spirit” theme is by taking part in Operation Blessing  Bag.

Gallon-size ziplock bags will be filled with travel-size toiletries, snacks, socks, etc. and, at the end of the Q, donated to St. Anthony’s Food Pantry, which provides food and clothing to those in need in St. Louis.

Q Tip: How to Help

Q graphic
Be a pray-er. Pray for the success of the “Q” and for all those working behind the scenes to make it “great”.

Be an encourager. If members of your fraternity would like to come to the Q but are hesitant, let them know what a wonderful family reunion it will be. If they need financial assistance, encourage them to apply for a scholarship (at right).
