Awareness

The MA Gamma chapter of Pi Beta Phi prides itself on its literacy awareness initiatives. Each semester, our chapter holds the event “Lollipops for Literacy”, where sisters get together to hand out lollipops with interesting and fun literacy facts around campus. It’s a great way to help promote our cause, as well as brighten the days of the people in our community! An example of one of our literacy facts is that an estimated 30 million Americans over 16 years old cannot perform simple everyday literacy activities.

Another way we raise awareness is in the spring we host a drive called Pi Pi & Co. Sisters will design bracelets with various color schemes, and the proceeds from their sales goes towards our national philanthropy. The bracelets have four beads, three being the same color and one a different color. This represents and brings awareness to the fact that one in four children in the United States cannot read!
