This weekend Pi Kappa Alpha Iota Delta showed how it cares for the Terre Haute Community with 2 days of service in a row. First we helped serve in the annual event Bikes for Tykes, a great service event where Rose Hulman students have the opportunity to put ourselves to use. We put together over 200 bikes for kids around the community! Most of us remember having a bike as kids and remember how useful and fun it was, before we had cars. Because of Bikes for Tykes these kids might have the chance experience the same joys as most of us did. Its was a lot of fun and we had a lot of us show up, like we always do!
The second Community event we had 10 of our guys went with 70 other members of Rose Greek life to the Terre Haute event, Shop with a Cop, where Terre Haute’s Fraternal Order of Police raised money for over 100 families to have $100 per child to shop for gifts and clothes for their christmas. After shopping with them for an hour or so we got to know some of the kids and parents, and really generate a nice bond. For everyone of us it was our second early morning community service event, and we’d do it again!
