USD fraternity helps various causes with Week of Service events
The various community service projects included serving meals at the Vermillion Welcome Table and assembling more than 150 bags for local children in the Vermillion Backpack Program. The events that raised money for charity were PIKES in the Park, Change for Change and Cycle for Life, a national philanthropy event held by the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Another highlight during the PIKE Week of Service was the ‘Fundie' Run, which raised awareness for domestic violence as participants, dressed in many layers of clothing, ran through campus shedding donated clothing at checkpoints. PIKE collected more than 700 articles of clothing as a result of the run.
