Phi Sigma Kappa helps local church
The Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity helped members of The United Church, at 19th and G streets, move furniture and boxes Friday and Saturday for the church’s annual October Fall Sale. Church spokeswoman Laetitia Combrinck said members were grateful for all the help from the fraternity, noting “(the) Phi Sigma Kappa fellows did a terrific job.”
The fraternity will help the church with the sale again on Thursday. The sale began Wednesday morning and will be open Thursday 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Nathan Blumberg, a junior and member of the fraternity’s philanthropy committee, said the fraternity “will continue to work hard and focus our efforts on helping out anywhere in the community that may need our assistance.”
