Throughout the first few weeks of the semester, Alpha Lambda Delta hosted a donations drive for the SPCA of Southwest Michigan, collecting items on the organization's wishlist to help care for the dogs and cats in the shelter.
From January 11th to the 22nd, 14 members made donations, and 20 volunteers joined us on Saturday, Januardy 23rd to make blankets and toys.
Altogether, the donations we collected were enough to fill up an entire SUV. Thank you, donors and volunteers!

Sophomore and Music Therapy major, Samuel Panicacci has been a member of Alpha Lambda Delta since the fall semester of 2015. Sam is receiving this honor because of his commitment to helping out with ALD volunteering events and outstanding positivity he brings to all ALD activities.
“I joined ALD because it only seemed like a win-win situation,” wrote Sam. “With another accolade for my college career, my Mom is able to be proud of me.” Proud she must be to have a son who is so helpful, cheery, motivated and involved. Not only is Sam an active member of Alpha Lambda Delta, but he’s also a member of the Lee Honors College, BRAIN lab undergraduate research team, the Student Music Therapy Association and an RA on campus.
Sam’s favorite event he’s done with ALD so far has been the Boys and Girls Club volunteering event that happened this last fall. “ALD has showed me how easy it is to open up my schedule to make time to volunteer and get points. When I have a goal in mind, such as getting as many points for ALD as possible, it feels good to accomplish it.”
Sam has been an active volunteer across WMU’s Campus and has been a great representation of what ALD is all about. Good luck on your research, thank you for all your hard work and congratulations, Sam!
