Lowcountry Kappa Deltas help local charities during pandemic

From staff reports

Lowcountry Kappa Delta Alumnae Chapter members have worked together on three community-service projects during the COVID-19 pandemic, even though they could not hold face-to-face meetings.

Donations from the local Kappa Deltas benefited CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention Association of Beaufort) and Bluffton Self Help.

Teens living in CAPA’s shelter needed school supplies, as fall classes got under way. So Lowcountry Kappa Deltas contributed nearly $300 in backpacks, paper, pens, notebooks, and other school supplies.

Over the summer, Kappa Deltas “cleaned their closets for CAPA.” More than a dozen large bags of clothing, books, toys and other gently-used household items were delivered to CAPA’s Closet Thrift Store in Beaufort. The donations filled an SUV from top to bottom.

Lowcountry Kappa Deltas also contributed to the “End Period Poverty” project, sponsored by Bluffton Self Help. Kappa Deltas donated nearly $200 in feminine hygiene supplies such as sanitary napkins, tampons, and disposal underwear for local girls and women who cannot afford those items.

Lowcountry Kappa Deltas Alumnae Chapter is a diverse group of community-minded women, who live in Hilton Head, Bluffton, Okatie, Ridgeland and Beaufort. The Lowcountry Chapter is one of 224 active Kappa Delta alumnae chapters across the country.

The local Alumnae Chapter has been recognized for community service and programs by Kappa Delta, a national organization for collegiate and alumnae women. For more information, email kdjeanette@aol.com or visit lowcountry.kappadelta.org or Facebook at Low Country, SC Kappa Delta Alumnae Chapter.
