The Kappa Rho Chapter makes it a mission to help others. The chapter began by raising money for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. In the beginning of the first semester of the 2016-2017 school year, Kappa Rho hosted an event called Laser W?rZ.
"Kappa Rho brought the fun of laser tag right to campus!" said member Ashley Stokes. "Other sororities and fraternities on campus helped support us by signing up for teams to raise money. During the event popcorn and water was offered to fuel the players."
The event raised $639 for Starkey and everyone enjoyed a successful and fun event.
Kappa Rho didn't stop there. The chapter hosted Mac and DZ, an event at multiple locations throughout Kutztown, Pennsylvania. Macaroni and cheese was sold throughout the night to those who passed by. "Not only was it a great way to raise money for Starkey and speech and hearing," said Ashley, "but it was a wonderful bonding time with our sisters." Kappa Rho raised $400 to donate to Starkey.
During the cold winter months, Kappa Rho members got together and hand made blankets for The Berks Women in Crisis Center in Pennsylvania. They donated piles of handmade blankets to help the women of the Center. The Center helps women who have been in abusive domestic situations and need a safe place to stay.
