Reading is Fundamental
Epsilon Lambda supports our national philanthropy, Reading Is Fundamental, by volunteering our time each Thursday at Thrive Lonsdale, a local afternoon school program in Knoxville. We work alongside kindergarten students and help mentor children to become more confident readers! This year we also held a book drive for a classroom taught by one of our very own Epsilon Lambda alum!
Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation
In addition to supporting our national philanthropy, Reading Is Fundamental, we support the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation. Our annual Fleur-de-Lis Tea and Parents Weekend are not only fun events for the chapter and their families, but they also help raise money for the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation. Through these events and our raffle drawings, we are able to contribute to the scholarships, aid, and other activities that the Kappa Kappa Gamma foundation supports.
Kappa Kolor Wars
Kappa Kolor Wars is Epsilon Lambda’s annual philanthropy event held in the Fall semester which raises money for the Reading is Fundamental. Kappa Kolor Wars is a paint filled balloons and colored powder dodge ball tournament! We offer both a sorority and fraternity bracket with prizes for the winners! Kappa Kappa Gamma seeks donations from families, friends, other Greek chapters, and local businesses. All proceeds raised from Kappa Kolor Wars go directly to the Reading is Fundamental.
Mac 'N' Keys
Our "Mac 'n' Keys" philanthropy event is held in the spring at the Kappa House in Sorority Village. It is an unlimited Mac 'n' Cheese bar prepared by our sisters alongside a "Reading Rainbow" dessert bar! All proceeds go out to the Reading is Fundamental & THRIVE. This year we had an amazing turnout and we can't wait to host this event again next year! Thank you to all who attended and helped our efforts!
For The Kids // VOLthon
Kappa Kappa Gamma also participates in For the Kids at UT. Kappa Kappa Gamma spends the entire night at For the Kids. By staying up all night volunteering or walking to raise awareness and funds, Kappa Kappa Gamma is on a mission to help kick out cancer. This event is an excellent way to band with our organization as well as the UT community for a great cause.
Kappa Kappa Gamma understands the importance of charity on both a local and national level and takes great pride in participating philanthropy events put on by other sororities and fraternities to help raise money for their national philanthropies.
