Volunteer Spotlight: UCSD's Kappa Alpha Theta and Tau Kappa Epsilon
This month, ILASCD would like to recognize UC San Diego’s Kappa Alpha Theta and Tau Kappa Epsilon. KAT and TKE joined forces to participate in our Cupid’s Cleanup event, and they sure did represent! They gathered 50 chapter members to take to the streets of North Park and helped to make this year’s Cupid’s Cleanup the most successful ever. When they’re not our cleaning up our beaches and canyons, KAT and TKE members can be found giving back to other local organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and Noah Homes. Great work, guys!
