Student members of the Sigma Kappa sorority at California University of Pennsylvania have been participating in service projects during the fall semester. 

“The sisters have loved coming up with creative ways to do things,” said senior Breanna Hahn, chapter president and criminal justice major. 

Cal U has been operating remotely for the fall semester in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Service events included a Walk to End Alzheimer’s, with students logging miles in their neighborhoods, and a mask sale, with proceeds benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association. 

“They masks are for a good cause, and it also spreads an important ‘wear your mask’ message,” Hahn said. 

Other events on the calendar include donations of toys and clothes to be distributed to those in need and a California, Pa., pay-it-forward day. 

“We’re going to send out sisters who live near campus with rolls of quarters to put in parking meters in the business district throughout the day so residents don’t have to worry about that,” Hahn said.
