Eastern Kentucky Pikes Support Domestic Violence Awareness
Posted on Nov 15, 2019
MEMPHIS, TN - Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is pleased to highlight Zeta Tau Chapter (Eastern Kentucky) as the November 2019 Chapter Spotlight. Carter Skipworth ’18 and Max Zahka ’18 share more about the chapter’s passion for this cause.Zeta Tau Chapter hosted its annual Pike Peak philanthropy week benefiting Hope’s Wings Domestic Violence Program. Participants competed in penny wars, a volleyball tournament, and the firefighter’s challenge obstacle course. The chapter also held Pie a Pike and PIKE Pup events to raise awareness on campus. Brothers raised over $4,000 for the organization.
Hope’s Wings is special to the brothers of Zeta Tau Chapter because of the great impact the organization makes in the Richmond, Kentucky, community. The program is home to an emergency shelter that has served more than 800 women and children since 2009. Seeking to show that the members of Zeta Tau stand with all women, especially those who have faced domestic violence, the chapter began its partnership with the shelter.
The chapter also hosted a These Hands Don’t Hurt rally. Guest speakers from Hope’s Wings educated attendees on what the shelter offers and why its mission is so important to the community. Attendees gathered to walk through campus and show their support.
The chapter is looking forward to continuing its work with Hope’s Wings in the future.
