In the 2015-16 Annual Report, Deirdre Ricaurte, Epsilon Mu/Princeton, shared that the Theta service trip was an unforgettable experience that will influence her in her future career. Deirdre’s not alone in these sentiments. Kate, Erika, and Paige share their gratitude for the donors who made the service trip possible:
“Thank you for donating to Theta Foundation. Your donation has allowed me to experience service that has positively impacted the lives of the people of New Orleans. This opportunity has opened my eyes to the way of service and how I can have a greater impact in my community. … Service will continue to be a large part of my life thanks to this service trip.” —Kate, Alpha/DePauw
“Thank you so much for your contributions towards the Kappa Alpha Theta Winter 2016 Service Trip [in Vancouver, Canada]. I’ve learned so much about myself, Theta, and the impact I’d like to have on the world. … Your contributions helped me better understand my privilege as a sorority woman and how service is an essential aspect of life and being a better person.” —Erika, Upsilon/Minnesota
“Thank you for supporting Kappa Alpha Theta! I was able to attend Theta’s service trip in New Orleans because of your generosity. … It was a wonderful experience, and it was your donation that helped make this possible.” —Paige, Gamma Nu/North Dakota State
Theta’s service trips have grown from one session with a handful of collegians in New Orleans to multiple sessions per year with both alumnae and collegians, and the locations are expanding, too. But even with additional sessions, the service trip application closes in mere hours due to high demand for the program.
Kappa Alpha Theta relies on annual fund support for programs like the service trip. When you make an unrestricted gift by June 30, your gift makes an immediate impact on students attending this program in July. Join our annual supporters and help your sisters change the world through service.
