Pi Kappa Alpha Raises Money and Awareness

(March 5, 2012) Armstrong's Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity raised awareness about Savannah's homeless population by making temporary homesteads out of three benches on the Armstrong campus from Friday, March 2 through Sunday, March 4, 2012.

Using cardboard boxes and wooden palettes, 18 Pike brothers built hovels and created signs urging passersby to donate to their cause. They were stationed at the Lane Library entrance, the Student Union courtyard and the Windward Commons courtyard.

After weathering a stormy weekend, the students raised nearly 300 canned food items, 200 articles of clothing and collected $374.14, all of which will be donated to the Savannah Mission Homeless Center.
