Kappa Delta Pi has embarked on a Literacy Alive service project this year. Members and inductees will be putting together Story Sacks to distribute to the Blackburn Center, a women's shelter, this spring.
Women suffering domestic violence often leave their homes quickly to get out of a dangerous situation. When they arrive at the Blackburn Center, mothers, and their children usually come with just the clothes on their backs. A representative from the Blackburn Center said that bedtime for children at the center is tough for many children because they area away from home and without security items that many children have at bedtime.
The Story Sacks will provide children in grades PreK-4, a bedtime storybook, a stuffed animal, and a fleece blanket, to keep.
Thank you members for exceeding our goal. We filled 37 Story Sacks! See the Thank You letter from the Blackburn Center.
