Beginning tomorrow, Oct. 1, The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi chapters will take part in the inaugural Fall Service Project initiative. Established by the Society’s Council of Students, chapters are encouraged to focus on a community need with a literacy component and to establish a partnership with a community organization.
Interested chapters can participate in the service project by addressing literacy needs of the community. Some examples include adult literacy, environmental literacy, computer literacy or financial literacy.
“The new Fall Service Project is a natural extension of the very successful book drives led by student vice presidents for the past six years,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “It offers our chapters the opportunity to partner with and support a literacy-focused cause in their local communities and aptly reflects Phi Kappa Phi’s mission of excellence, engagement and service.”The service project can take place for any length of time during the month of October. One chapter from each division will be honored for their commitment to the community. The national office will provide a $200 monetary contribution to each chapter’s partner community organization.
