“So much charity, it’s scary!”
Philanthropy Organization: Jackson Street Youth Shelter
Money Donated: $4,218.15
With philanthropy being of great importance to the Kappa Omicron chapter, our brothers seize every opportunity to be of service to our community. Not only does service provide an opportunity to impact those around us, but also to develop meaningful relationships in the community. During the Fall term, our chapter seized the opportunity by hosting the annual Halloween Haunted House. This year, all of the proceeds supported the Jackson Street Youth Shelter of Corvallis, Oregon. The Youth Shelter plays an instrumental role in our community in providing shelter and resources for at-risk youth in the Corvallis area.
A month of hard work and preparation made this haunted house one of the scariest yet. Brothers Dylan Girardi, Jordan Pascua and Damon Greenshields facilitated the organization and planning for the event, which raised just over $4,200.00. The event was held at the Kappa Omicron chapter house this year and used the basement, first floor, second floor, and third floor as stages for our actors. Not only did the haunted house gather a great deal of resources for the Jackson Street Youth Shelter, but it also gathered hundreds of people from the Corvallis community to contribute to the cause as well through their participation. The Haunted House was a huge success, and we plan to continue the charitable tradition.
