The mayor of Salisbury, Maryland, Mr. Jake Day, has proclaimed November 28th as “Kappa Sigma Day”. Mayor Day was extremely proud of the Pi-Sigma Chapter at Salisbury University for its efforts in helping to maintain the Salisbury Zoo after multiple tropical storms and record rainfall struck the area in September and October. The zoo had incurred much damage, primarily due to flooding, high winds, and falling debris. The Pi-Sigma Chapter had previously volunteered at the zoo last semester and the fall of 2015, but when they realized the potential of the possible damage from the upcoming storms, Brother Dustin Lovely (’15) reached out to the zoo administration, offering any assistance they may need. Brother Lovely then reached out to the Chapter for assistance, asking them to take time out of their busy schedules during the week and help whenever they were be needed. The brothers were more than willing to come to the zoo before, in between, and after their classes to help out as much as possible. The brothers of the Pi-Sigma Chapter were more than thrilled when, unexpectedly, Mayor Day had November 28th declared “Kappa Sigma Day”. The Mayor continues to express his gratitude towards the Chapter by offering his assistance in kind. Congratulations to the Chapter and thank you for being a glowing example of our A Greater Cause initiative. Well done brothers, well done.
Kappa Sigma is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. It is this commitment that has provided the inspiration and vision for A Greater Cause – the Fraternity’s bold initiative to promote volunteerism, citizenship and service to the community. During the 2013-2015 biennium, Kappa Sigma members raised more than $5.8 million for charity and volunteered over 1.1 million hours of community service as part of the initiative.
