Got Community?

This past Sunday, our Community Builders organized a small group of staff to decorate a box that will be used to collect winter clothing donations for the needy. Brown students will get to see our handiwork outside the doors of campus's main dining hall and donate their unwanted clothing to a good cause.

Camille and Megan adorn the clothing donation box with drawings of winter
clothes and other winter-themed items like snowflakes and snowmen :)

So far this semester, Community Building has done a wonderful job planning events to get staff to know each other. Several weeks ago, the Community Builders prepared a scavenger hunt that pitted the staff (divided into 3 teams) against each other in heated competition to hunt for campus's primary landmarks (and others that were not so well-known or obvious!). In two weeks, the Community Builders will hold a movie screening and potluck meal so staff can gather and socialize one more time before the Thanksgiving break.

GlobeMed at Brown is just as much about creating community among staff as it is educating staff about global health issues and fundraising for our partner, U-Tena –– so thank you Community Builders for all the fantastic work you're doing!
