Meet the 2019-20 Community Service Chair!
Hi! My name is Jennifer Prillwitz and I am the Community Service Officer! I am a sophmore studying Chemical Engineering. I enjoy reading, running, and spending time outside with friends.
Spring 2020 Events
Tie Blanket Event
“SWE had an awesome time making tie blankets through the Linus Project for children who have been in the hospital for an extended period of time”
Capital Science and Engineering Fair
We had the awesome opportunity to help organize and provide volunteers for the Capital Science and Engineering Fair at Madison Public Library! We got the chance to take a look at all the neat research projects that high school students from the Madison and Milwaukee areas have worked so hard on.
Red Cross SWE Blood Drive
SWE hosted a Red Cross Blood Drive in the beginning of March which presented an awesome opportunity for students to donate blood and give their time volunteering at the drive!
Fall 2019 Events
Red Cross Blood Drive
On November 5th, SWE hosted an Engineering Blood Drive through Red Cross. We had over 30 donations which can potentially help save up to 90 lives! Be The Match had a table set up outside the event to share information and raise awareness about signing up for the National Bone Marrow Registry. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and donated at the Drive
Lakeshore Nature Preserve Volunteering
Members volunteered at Picnic Point through the Lakeshore Nature Preserve, helping to spread wood chips onto trails and remove invasive buck thorn from the surrounding areas!
Card Making for Hospitalized Kids
As a part of SWE Week, the Community Service Committee made cards for children who have been in the hospital for an extended period of time. Cookies were consumed, creative cards were constructed, and fun memories were made!
