The brothers of the Pi Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma at Fayetteville State University in North Carolina are very smart when it comes to service.
The brothers recently went around campus collecting cafeteria meal swipes from fellow students and then used those swipes to buy food for homeless shelters in their community. In total, the brothers collected over 500 meal swipes for the homeless and exceeded their goals.
The service project, which goes by the name “Piece of the Pi”, was started by Rodney Adams and Robert Anderson in 2016 as a way to assist the homeless because homelessness is prevalent in Fayetteville, NC. The brothers of the Pi Chapter make “Piece of the Pi” an annual event that occurs at the end of every academic semester and this is their 4 year doing it.
We at Watch The Yard would like to commend these brothers for their service. This is a really quick and easy service project to run that involves little to no startup costs and can make a big difference in the community.
We encourage other Black fraternity and sorority undergrad chapters around the country to follow suit and try doing this event on their campuses.
