Brothers in West Virginia Give Back

With 2012 ending and 2013 beginning a new semester for schools and year for alumni, we love to see the reflection from many of our groups. This includes our men at West Virginia Alpha, who sent an official news release to the National Headquarters to highlight their commitment to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

In the release, our men cite a year-long commitment to the Boys & Girls Club of Morgantown, West Virginia. The chapter raised $2,500 through two separate philanthropy events.

"The Boys & Girls Clubs are Phi Kappa Psi's national service partner and it is very important to the brothers that they contribute to the community for a great cause," said Vice President Chip Matala West Virginia '10.

The chapter has shown a commitment to the community, which dates back over a century ago to the founding of Phi Kappa Psi's 52nd chapter in 1890. As a new semester begins, we expect to hear more news like this from not just West Virginia Alpha, but our 103 chapters around the country.

We encourage more of our members and chapters to engage in some form of service, including our National Day of Service, April 13, 2013. Our national commitment to the Boys & Girls Club also includes an increased focus this semester with our adopted club, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County. Please find a way to help support our efforts to give back to a tremendous organization.
