Anne Mcknight gave me your email addresses and I thought I would send you a little email introducing myself (and so that you have my email address. My name is Kelly Stroud and I am the president of Wake Forest's chapter of Pi Beta Phi (NC Gamma). I am a junior here and an Elementary Education major, Women & Gender Studies minor. Unfortunately, I'm almost done with my term, but one of my good friends, Chelsea Barefoot, will be taking over as president. I will certainly make sure you all can contact her, come January. NC Gamma is an amazing group of women. We currently have 135 active sisters, but many of our juniors are studying abroad! In the spring, we will be going through formal recruitment and we expect our numbers to rise to ~ 170.
I really look forward to meeting you all and working closely with the Greensboro ladies! I'd love to hear back from you all!
Take care and Pi Phi love,

October 25th Thursday--Joy McCoy's home:
3525 Spicebush Trail--
Tel. 288-9572. 7:00 pm--
Back to School Book Drive for Center of Hope to Support Literacy
Literacy is Pi Beta Phi’s top priority!
This year, once again, our club will be supporting the children & families at Salvation Army’s Center of Hope.
At our meeting on October 25, we will collect books for all ages, school supplies (pencils, notebooks, etc.) and toiletries for the families at the Center of Hope.
We will learn more about Pi Phi’s partnership with First Book, an international nonprofit organization founded in 1992 with the mission of giving children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. The critical factor of whether or not a child becomes a reader is access to books in the home.
Did you know?
30,000,000 adults & millions more children in this country are illiterate
40% of 4th graders in this country lack basic proficiency in reading
School drop-outs earn less than 1/3 the earnings of a college graduate
Health costs for those lacking high school degree are four times higher
¼ of those dropping out of school receive government assistance
80% of prisoners did not finish high school
Illiterate women are likely to be in an abusive relationship
Together we can make a difference. Kyle Zimmer with First Book comments, "If we change one child at a time…we can change this country forever.”
Goals for this year:
We hope to have a “panty raid” for the children at the Center of Hope.
On March 2, our National Service Day
We plan to have a birthday party for Dr. Seuss at the Center of Hope.
