The women of the Beta Theta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma have a huge heart for the Norman community and helping those in need. Fueled by this passion for philanthropic endeavors, we focus on both at Kappa within the Norman community and nationally. We work closely with both The Center for Children and Families Inc. in Norman and Reading Is Fundamental, nationally. We also enjoy furthering the causes that our fellow Panhellenic community values through attending their fundraising events and supporting their causes.
Our main philanthropy event, Kappa Kupcakes- a new event with homemade cupcakes made by the members of Kappa Kappa Gamma- was organized to raise funds for the local community. For several years, Kappa has chosen to pair with The Center for Children and Families because their mission to heal children, strengthen families, and empower youth aligns with our sorority’s philanthropic mission to provide service to others locally. This past year, the Beta Theta Chapter was able to raise more money than we ever have at Kappa Kupcakes! We hosted 550 people in our Kappa Hall to enjoy yummy treats made by our members and were able to raise over $15,000 for The Center for Children and Families.
Kappa Kappa Gamma also organizes a Panhellencic wide book drive every Fall, where all books collected are donated to schools within the Norman Public School District, as well as CCFI, to help promote and further growth within the Norman community. As members of the Norman community, we strive to better it by giving back to the community that gives so much to us. One way that we do this is going to local elementary schools and CCFI and read to the children as well as participate in a craft with them. At the end of the day, each child is able to take a book home. For many kids, this is the first book that they have ever owned.
This year's Kappa Kupcakes event will be held on March 26, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
