Lake Erie College Kappa Sigma Fraternity Organizes Food Drive(Painesville, Ohio) – Kappa Sigma fraternity announced today that it will hold an inaugural "Day of Service” throughout the United States and Canada on Saturday, October 20. Thousands of college undergraduate and alumni members will volunteer their time for service projects and philanthropic fundraisers to benefit hundreds of non-profit organizations within their local communities.
At Lake Erie College, members of the local Kappa Sigma chapter will volunteer their time to collect non-perishable food to benefit the Zion Lutheran Church Food Pantry in Painesville.
"I am humbled at the Kappa Sigma chapter’s gracious service to the needs of our community,” said Reverend Jimmy Riley, associate pastor of Zion Lutheran Church.
The "Day of Service” is the latest strategy in Kappa Sigma’s "A Greater Cause” initiative, the international fraternity’s ongoing commitment to promote volunteerism, citizenship and service to the community. It will be the largest single-day service project in the history of Kappa Sigma fraternity and the first coordinated international day of service for any collegiate social fraternity.
"It’s awesome to be part of a huge international event where all Kappa Sigmas from across North America will participate in different service projects in their communities,” said Matt Swanson, president of Lake Erie College’s Kappa Sigma chapter. "It’s perfect timing to organize a food drive for the local community as the holiday season approaches.”
Collections will be made on the College campus on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 16-17, throughout the week at Zion Lutheran Church, and at the College football game at Jack Britt Stadium and the Fall Fest in Veterans’ Park on Saturday, October 20.
