Greek-letter groups skate for charity
Members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and Delta Gamma sorority hosted a skating event for underprivileged children last month at the National Sculpture Garden.
The elementary-aged children are a part of the volunteer-based organization Martha’s Table. The nonprofit organization, founded in 1980, is dedicated to supporting low-income and homeless children and families.
During the event, a member of the Greek-letter community helped teach 23 children how to skate.
Participants said the event strengthened the relationship between the Greek-letter community and Martha’s Table.
This is the second year the Beta Theta Pi fraternity sponsored the event but it is the first time it joined forces with a sorority.
“I think it went really well,” said Andrew Eisenburg, philanthropy chair of Beta Theta Pi. “It was a learning experience and I think everyone enjoyed it.”
