On Thursday, December 13, 2012, brothers in Sigma Phi Epsilon got the opportunity to spread a little more holiday cheer to the city of Clarksville. In the past few years, our chapter has collected books for our annual philanthropy, “Seuss for Schools”. We were able to donate about 300 books to Byrns Darden Elementary School this year. We were happy to be able to give the gift of a Dr. Seuss book to every kindergartner, first grader and second grader in the school. Principal Andy Lyons was fully supportive of the idea and organized the event for us. He said the teachers were especially appreciative and the kids were going to love learning to read some of those books. Some of the young students even said it was their first book they have ever received!
SigEp is always looking for good opportunities to serve in the community. We are happy to be able to help in any small way that we could. We understand that such a small gift can create a huge impact in a young child’s life. We look forward to continuing with this tradition and hopefully donating books to more schools across Montgomery County.
