Kappa Alpha Theta holds its annual Theta Day of Service

Kappa Alpha Theta recently held its 14th annual Theta Day of Service on October 19, 2023. Since 2009, Thetas from all over the globe have volunteered and provided service in their respective communities. The Theta Day of Service is held on October 19th each year to honor and celebrate the birthday of the fraternity’s founder, Bettie Locke Hamilton.

This year, Kappa Alpha Theta provided examples of service activities based on their four founders. We particularly appreciate the long-term idea to “Become a CASA [volunteer]” attributed to Bettie Locke.

For over 30 years, the women of Kappa Alpha Theta have provided critical support for and partnership with National CASA/GAL and our nationwide network of programs. Thank you, Thetas, for your continued support. Your service to communities on the Theta Day of Service and year-round is an inspiration and greatly appreciated by us all.
