Sorority writes letters for nursing home residents, healthcare workers

Members of the Chi Omega sorority at the University of Wyoming took a different approach to community service last fall, reaching into the Laramie community to find and support people who are feeling the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Caitlyn Nichols, the sorority’s community service director, said the group usually partners with Make-A-Wish Foundation for many of its service and fundraising efforts. But as the fall semester got underway, members expressed a desire to make a direct impact in the local community.

“We started to notice that some of the women in our sorority were saying, I wish we could do something in the town of Laramie or even the state of Wyoming,” Nichols said.
