Chapter Service & Philanthropy
The Upsilon Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta partakes in a variety of service and philanthropic events throughout the academic year in order to contribute to the community around us. Our national philanthropy supports CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), which aids abused and neglected children going through the court system. In Fall 2015 we held our first annual Kicks for CASA kickball tournament, open to the U of M community, to support CASA.
Our chapter has also previously volunteered with Feed My Starving Children, Little Farm Hands, Operation Glass Slipper, and Ever After Gowns. We have also hosted events in partnership with Charity Denim, and have been active in campus events, such as Relay for Life and the Unlimited Dance Marathon. In Spring 2015, Theta was was the Greek organization with the largest chapter participation. Over 20 of our members danced for 12 hours straight to support the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.
We also support other members of our Greek community by attending other sorority and fraternity philanthropy events throughout the year. From 5k runs and diner food, to bake sales and a cuddling with puppies, we enjoy making new friends in our Greek community and supporting a wide variety of causes, letting each member find something meaningful for them to support outside of our own cause.
