TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — As part of their Philanthropy Week, TROY’s Alpha Delta Pi (ADPi) sorority held a ‘Pie a Pi’ event on the John Lewis Quad.
The money raised will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which provides housing for families with children in the hospital.
“The families will be housed in the Ronald McDonald House to stay close to the kid while they are in the hospital because staying in a hotel for months on end can get really expensive,” said ADPi’s Vice President of Event Management Zoe August.
Other events have been planned along with Pie-a-Pi to raise money. Events include Spirit Nights at local businesses and a week-long bake sale at Trojan Center.
“Our sisters made homemade goodies,” August explained. “We have brookies, cupcakes, different things like that.”
According to August, Philanthropy Week is a great way for students to come together for a good cause no matter what organization they are a part of.
“That’s something special about TROY. Every organization comes together and supports one philanthropy. That’s always awesome.”
