Preceptor Pi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi will donate $100 worth of items to the Boxes of Love project sponsored by United Way of Central Kansas. In February, these items for senior adults living alone who have no family or friends for help or companionship, and therefore depend on agencies for food and social contact, will be delivered by Meals on Wheels, ElderCare Home Services and Golden Belt Home Health and Hospice.
The chapter continues donating bags of apples and oranges twice a month for the First United Methodist Church’s Weekend Backpack Project providing fruit to elementary school students. This year the chapter so far has also chosen to donate to Central Kansas Dream Center, the Makinna Ann Hope Foundation and the Barton County Food Bank.
Helping to make these donations possible, the chapter’s Reception Sisters assist with receptions for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other celebrations to raise funds for the chapter’s various service projects. Anyone wishing more information about this project may contact Ways and Means Chair Judy Krebaum, 620-793-6836.
