Kansas City Reading Is Fundamental Event
Our alumnae members support numerous well-deserving organizations across the Kansas City metropolitan area - through fund development, hours of volunteer service and monetary donations.
Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), our official philanthropic partner, has been supported through the donation of thousands of books and volunteer hours to Boys and Girls Clubs, elementary schools and hospitals.
Locally, we support RIF through reading programs and book donations to Operation Breakthrough and The Children's Place.
In 2015 KC Kappas brought a “Rainbow Fish” experience to the Children's Place on Friday, March 28. In support of the Reading is Fundamental philanthropy, Kappas donated copies of “The Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister, read to the children while they snacked on Goldfish crackers and helped them with an art project. Both KC Kappas and the children had a blast! Many thanks to Erica H. for organizing this heartwarming event.
