Kappa Sigma Fraternity volunteers to beautify Kino Parkway

Tucson, AZ –
Members of U of A’s Kappa Sigma Fraternity will clean a three-mile stretch of Kino Parkway on Saturday morning as part of the fraternity’s International Day of Service. Just two months after returning to the University of Arizona campus, over seventy young men will team up with Tucson Clean & Beautiful to clear the roadway of debris and recyclable matter.

“We selected this service activity because we felt that Kino is an important gateway between the airport and our campus”, says Alex Martinez, a freshmen and chair of Kappa Sigma’s Greater Cause Committee. “Being that it’s also Family Weekend for the University, it’s a perfect opportunity to showcase the beauty of our city.”

The organization’s volunteer activity is part of the fraternity’s inaugural International Day of Service. Thousands of college undergraduate and alumni members will volunteer their time for service projects and philanthropic fundraisers to benefit hundreds of non-profit organizations within their local communities.  Projects will range from serving meals in soup kitchens, to charity donation drives, to building homes for low-income families.

The Day of Service is the latest strategy in Kappa Sigma’s “A Greater Cause” initiative, the organization’s ongoing commitment to promote volunteerism, citizenship and service to the community.  It will be the largest single-day service project in the history of Kappa Sigma Fraternity, and the first coordinated international day of service for any collegiate social fraternity.
