SquadUP: Are you a part of any organizations on campus?
Taylor: I’m the Philanthropy Chair for the Alpha Xi Delta Sorority.
SquadUP: Are you throwing events with Alpha Xi Delta? What types of events are we talking about?
Taylor: We plan and host events each semester to raise money and awareness for Autism Speaks. We recently had a full week filled with events such as a men’s competition, a pie eating contest, and a football tournament. We also host a Karaoke night, and a huge 5k walk/run in the spring.
SquadUP: What’s the most frustrating part about event hosting?
Taylor: The most frustrating part is getting the word out and getting more people involved. We try really hard to raise as much money and awareness for such a good cause and we want people to be passionate about this cause, just like we are, and to get the entire community involved! I have used SquadUP for Alpha Xi Delta’s Apple Picking and am excited to use it for future philanthropy events!
