Pi Beta Phi’s national philanthropy, Read>Lead>Achieve, aims to foster a lifelong commitment and love of reading that can better our society through literacy. As the Direct of Service and Philanthropy, it is my job to inspire other members of our organization to participate in philanthropic events and fundraising efforts to contribute to the lowering of the 1 in 4 child statistic, because just one illiterate child is one too many.
New York Eta has developed fun and collaborative ways to contribute to our philanthropy. For the Fraternity Day of Service we will be collecting books and stationary for donation to children in need of materials to better their learning. As always I am very excited for the new year in the Champions are Readers program. There is much anticipation for this as we aim to teach not only one, but three classes throughout the Spring semester!
I hope that with my experience in planning service events and enthusiasm I can find new and innovative ways to encourage NY Eta to invest in our philanthropy!
Pi Phi Love + Mine,
Director of Service and Philanthropy
