Eustis, Florida (PRWEB) March 27, 2015
Undergraduates and alumni members of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity from around the country will gather on Saturday, March 28 at Camp Boggy Creek to help prepare camp for its spring and summer programs. For two and a half days, Phi Kappa Tau brothers will volunteer their time building, painting, and cleaning in preparation for arrival of children for summer camp.
Since 1995, Phi Kappa Tau has adopted SeriousFun Children’s Network, of which Camp Boggy Creek is a member organization, as its national charity partner. Inspired by actor, philanthropist, SeriousFun founder and Phi Kappa Tau alumnus Paul Newman (Ohio Univ. 1943), chapters around the country raise money and awareness and volunteering their time to ensure that children can attend camp free of charge. The National Community Service Event helps create an emotional connection to camp that will inspire fraternity members to share the message and experience of camp with their local chapters and communities. As a national organization, Phi Kappa Tau contributes more than $100,000 to SeriousFun Camps every year.
