This past weekend Kappa Sigma’s Theta-Gamma Chapter at Midwestern State University took to the streets to raise money for the local Faith Mission homeless shelter. The annual Box-a-thon event has been a long running tradition in the chapter and the brothers look forward to it every year.
Using cardboard for makeshift housing and signs the brothers took to the street corners of Wichita Falls, Texas to raise money for the cause. Chapter member and IFC President Alejandro Franco was one of many brothers who attended the event saying “besides the rain and cold, I enjoyed the brothers sticking together and having fun. We are here to make an impact on the local community.”
The Theta-Gamma Chapter was able to raise $2,462 from donations and the brothers are now switching gears to prepare for their Wounded Warrior community service project in the spring.
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 2011-2013 biennium, Kappa Sigma members raised more than $3.6 million for charity and volunteered nearly 1.1 million hours of community service as part of the initiative.
