Since 1998, the Phi Kappa Phi chapter at Truman has supported literacy efforts through regular donations to the Adair County Public Library. Megan O’Brien, Student Vice President for Service, recently presented library director Glenda Hunt with a check for $300 to help support media acquisitions and library operations.
Nationally, Phi Kappa Phi endeavors to promote literacy through a wide variety of member projects. Members can even apply for ΦΚΦ literacy grants to sponsor projects in their communities. Learn more online at http://bit.ly/1DFtTLT.
Please donate staple food items this week to help with the Novinger Christmas Basket project! You can bring your donation to the SUB Office, located just off The Hub on the main floor of the Student Union.
Phi Kappa Phi partners with Novinger each year to help engage their students in the idea of post-secondary education. Novinger is a town of 450 people just west of Kirksville. The K-12 Adair County R-I School serves Novinger and the surrounding community. The school has 250 students and faces a number of financial concerns common to small, rural districts in Missouri. Phi Kappa Phi works with the eighth grade class to help them envision a personal future in higher education. Showing goodwill with the Christmas Basket Project is a great way to start that effort with a new class each year. The baskets go to help feed needy families in the area.
Be sure to swing by the SUB Office this week with your “staple food item” donation. Thank you!
