Chi Chapter Philanthropy Chair Lexi Cole worked to organize a spa day for women at Mosaic in Southeast Kansas, an agency that advocates for people with intellectual disabilities and provides opportunities for them to enjoy a full life.
The chapter adopted Mosaic as a local service project. Lexi said she wanted to do more than just maintain a relationship with the agency and wanted to find a way for the chapter to be more involved in service with the members Mosaic serves. Lexi worked with the event coordinator to create a spa day for the women there.
“We felt as though it would be fun for the residents and also give our (members) an opportunity to serve and get to know these ladies while building friendships,” Lexi said.
After members provided spa services for the women at Mosaic, they participated in a photoshoot where a photographer was hired to come and take photos of everyone together and capture the friendships that were made in such a short period of time.
“Overall, the experience was amazing and I heard so much positive feedback from not only our ladies, but the residents of Mosaic,” Lexi said. “Our next event was held on October 17 and we had a potluck that the men and women of Mosaic were invited to!”
The chapter hopes to host at least one event per month for the residents of Mosaic.
