Troy University‘s Kappa Delta sorority presented the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center with a check just over fifty-one thousand dollars to wrap up Child Abuse Awareness Month.
Center Director Kayley Green says the donation will go a long way towards helping children in the community.
“That money from Kappa Delta is vitally important to the center,” says Green. “It’s one of the biggest donations that we get from the community. Like I mentioned, we run off of grants and donations so that check helps us sustain our free services to our children and families and so having that donation means so much to us as a center because it helps ensure that our services and needs are met to our kids and that that sustains us throughout the year.”
Raising money for child abuse prevention is Kappa Delta’s philanthropy project every year.
They say that they are happy that the product of their hard work will stay here in Troy.
“It is such an honor,” says KD Director of Philanthropy and Community Service Peyton Berry. “The CAC does so much here for our community and it’s just so rewarding to be able to have 80 percent of our total that we raise stay right here in Troy so the CAC can continue to help the families and the kids in our community.”
