Each year the Hill Country Kappas participate in Kappa's national philanthropy, Reading is Fundamental. RIF works to build a literate nation by helping young people discover the joys of reading. It's highest priority is to serve the nation's under - served children and families through the development and delivery of literacy programs and campaigns that motivate youth to read regularly.
To support our philanthropy in 2009- 2010, we donated 27 books to K'Star in July. K'Star is a local non-profit organization that provides services and shelter for boys and girls ages 0 - 17 that are in protective custody, are at risk of running away, have truant behavior, or are in abusive or neglectful situations. They were thrilled to get so many books that would benefit all of their children!
We also adopt a local family at Christmas. We were able to give our family $500 in clothes, gift cards, food, and cash this year!
