COVID-19 UPDATES

GENERAL MEETINGS

Virtual General Meetings

General meetings will be held every Monday of Spring Quarter at 8 p.m. at https://uci.zoom.us/j/594421689

To get points towards Active Membership, you will need to attend our meetings:

  1. We will be using the list of members present in the call to give points for each week's General Meeting

  2. Your username on the Zoom call must include your first and last name as they appear on the points sheet, or you will not be getting points for attending that week's General Meeting

DISCORD

All Social Aspects Will Be Through Discord

We will be using a Discord server to help us all stay connected.

This server will be used to

  • Keep in close connection with our families for the quarter

  • Play Jackbox and other online games

  • Host some of our icebreakers

  • Hold our online Socials

If you're interested, please join our Discord server at https://tinyurl.com/JoinRCCDiscord!

ACTIVE MEMBERSHIP

New Active Membership Requirements

Active membership will be tracked through Google Docs this quarter.

  • Each Google Doc will hold all of the necessary screenshots and descriptions to help us keep track of your points

  • You will send us one email with a link to your Google Doc rather than sending out multiple emails throughout the quarter

  • Your points will be updated on the website under your family's name, as done in Fall and Winter Quarter

 

To get started, visit https://tinyurl.com/RCC-ActiveMembershipDoc and follow the directions listed in the template.

Active membership requirements have also changed for this quarter. Please visit the Membership page for the new requirements.

COMMUNITY SERVICE EVENTS

Alternatives to In-Person Service Events

 

After careful consideration, we found that it would be irresponsible for our organization to put ourselves and the organizations we volunteer for at risk through the work of our community service events.

This quarter, we offer:

  • Remote service events held on certain weekends

  • Reflective Essay

Active Membership Requirement: 2 Online/At-Home Service Events or Reflective Essays

Please visit Events page for more information.

FUNDRAISING

New Active Membership Requirement: Freerice

We will be requiring each Active Member to use the FREE trivia platform https://freerice.com/ to donate 12,000 grains of rice to the World Food Programme. 

Every correct question answered donates 10 grains of rice to families in need. 

Please visit the Fundraising page for more information.

CORAZON DE VIDA

Corazon de Vida Cancelled

 

After careful consideration, it would be irresponsible for us to travel in such a large group and risk illness among ourselves or those at the orphanage

We will ensure that all of the donations we received, the cards we made, and the money we raised this year as well as this quarter are transferred to the orphanage that we were originally planning to visit.

RELAY FOR LIFE

New Virtual Experience

 

The Colleges Against Cancer, responsible for organizing Relay for Life at UCI, has made the event a virtual experience due to the current COVID-19 crisis. 

Date of the event:

Saturday April 25, 2020  from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm through Facebook Live. 

You can watch the Relay for Life 2020 at https://tinyurl.com/CACRelayforLife!

FIELD DAY

Field Day Is To Be Determined

 

This event will most likely be cancelled if the status of the COVID-19 situation is stagnant or gets worse.

We will release further information about the status of Field Day as the time of the event approaches.

BANQUET

Banquet

May 30 / Saturday Week 9

6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
