As expected, the philanthropy efforts were light in January. Some schools don’t start classes until half way through the month, so this isn’t a surprise. There were a few chapters, although, that took advantage of the free time that a new semester offers.
Kappa Alpha Theta at Baylor University - CASA Couture
On Wednesday, January 25th the Thetas at Baylor held their annual CASA Couture event. The sisters filled their chapter room full of vendors who sell crafts and merchandise for Greek organizations. They had a huge room full of jewelry and all the proceeds went toward CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates. The nonprofit assigns appointed volunteers to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children during their journey through the legal and social system. The sisters really made a good argument for there really being no reason for students not to come and treat themselves.
Sigma Gamma Rho at LSU - Wild Out Wednesday: StRHOlling for a Cause
