The Lawrence Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club joined forces with the Kansas Alpha Chapter at Kansas University on March 2 for this year’s Fraternity Day of Service. Members had a chance to listen to Dr. Jean Harty, the co-founder of Reach Out and Read Kansas City, an organization that promotes children’s literacy.
This year, Pi Phi partnered with First Book, a group that provides books for children in need, for the “Make Your Mark for Literacy” campaign. The goal is to donate another 50,000 books. For every bookplate decorated, a child will receive a brand-new book from First Book.
