Members of the Kappa Delta Chi sorority will set out on Halloween trick-or-treating for donations

As dusk begins to settle over Corvallis and children fill the streets in pursuit of candy, members of Kappa Delta Chi will be in pursuit of coins. All week long, members of the Kappa Delta Chi sorority have been braving the cold mornings with small orange cardboard boxes, beckoning students to empty their pockets of loose change for the less fortunate children in the world.

“We’re trying to fundraise money to go straight to UNICEF to help provide water, protein for biscuits, supplies and water kits for needy children,” said Laura Galindo, a sophomore studying political science and member of the Kappa Delta Chi sorority.

The United Nations International Children’s Fund sent the members of Kappa Delta Chi 30 coin donation boxes to set up around campus and take trick-or-treating. The sorority hopes to raise at least $100 for UNICEF. The UNICEF foundation fights for the survival and development of the world’s most vulnerable children and protects their human rights. Money earned through UNICEF helps to reduce the number of the world’s children who die from preventable causes due to severe poverty and corrupt governments.

On Halloween, members of Kappa Delta Chi and the Oregon State community will set out into Corvallis to trick-or-treat. Kappa Delta Chi is a multicultural, newly established sorority on campus. They are welcoming community members to join them in their quest to raise money for UNICEF by stopping by their table in the Memorial Union quad with spare change or joining them to trick-or-treat. “This is a fun event that provides bonding time while doing service,” said Katlyn Taylor, president of Kappa Delta Chi sorority.

The members of Kappa Delta Chi and Oregon State community will meet in the Kerr Administration Building parking lot at 6 p.m. on Halloween and go out into the Timberhill neighborhoods to trick-or-treat for donations.
