Kappa Sigma held its third international day of service during the weekend of Oct. 4-6, 2013. Undergraduates and alumni throughout the U.S. and Canada volunteered within their local communities with nonprofit organizations benefiting various causes.
The Oklahoma District planned their event in conjunction with the fall SEC meeting that was being held in Tulsa. More than 200 volunteers split their time between the YMCA of Greater Tulsa and Camp Fire USA Green Country Council.
Several chapters were featured in their local media. Undergraduates and alumni of the Rho-Eta Chapter at High Point University were featured for their work on cleaning up a local stream, while Nu-Theta (Morehead State University) was featured local paper for their volunteer work at Helping Hands and Christian Social Services.
In an impressive fundraising campaign, the The Alpha-Eta Chapter at George Washington University raised nearly $40,000 to donate to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund childhood cancer research.
All-in-all, the Fraternity’s Day of Service initiative continues to grow and an increasing number of undergraduate and alumni are giving back to their local communities. As of Oct. 16, nearly 6,000 volunteer hours have been logged, and more than $27,000 dollars have been donated to fund charitable causes.
