For RIF we partner with our local RIF program at BC (Brookland-Cayce) Grammar School in West Columbia. This year we volunteered at their scholastic book fairs in both the fall and spring, where we had the opportunity to interact and read with the kids. We also volunteered at their Spring Fling, which is a carnival they hold for the kids. We also plan to have our Reading Is Key event there in the fall, where every child goes home with a book and they have the opportunity to do arts and crafts and read with our members.
This spring we held a book drive throughout greek village. We collected about 200 books for the United Way of the Midlands reading consortium, which provides books and reading to children in public schools throughout Columbia.
In the Fall we hold our annual philanthropy event Kappa Kickoff. It is a flag football tournament between different organizations on campus. The event takes place on a Sunday in November and is a fun all day event on the fields behind our house!
