The Alpha chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma served up heaps of spaghetti for its annual dinner last Friday. Chapter members threw in a helping hand to make garlic bread, salad, and sauce at the First United Methodist Church. Monmouth College students, faculty, and even members of the community gathered in the church to support KKG’s philanthropies, the Jamieson Center and Safe Harbor in Galesburg. “It’s just something we enjoy doing every year. We’re happy to support Greek life and the work they do for the community,” says Steve Murmann, Monmouth College alum.
Kappa Kappa Gamma raised over $1,000 to donate to the Jamieson Center and Safe Harbor. “We’re just happy to give back to the communities that support us so much. We’ve been working closely with the Jamieson Center these last few years and just recently we have decided to reach out to Safe Harbor,” says chapter President Maddy Neal. The Jamieson Center provides food, clothes, and other necessities to those in need, and Safe Harbor serves as a resource for women and children in domestic violence situations. “We were able to provide a good meal for students and give back, so overall it’s a win win situation for us,” says Neal.
