Greeks get in the giving spirit with Rubye’s Kids holiday party

Written by , Posted in Around Campus, Greek Life, Living

Temple Greek Life gathered this week to help others get in the holiday spirit.

With the Temple University Greek Association’s assistance, the brothers of Alpha Tau Omega and Alpha Kappa Lambda and the sisters of Delta Zeta will donate their time to Rubye’s Kids, an organization dedicated to providing a variety of enriching experiences for needy children in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

The Greeks will volunteer at the organization’s Dec. 14 Holiday Party, held at Girard College.

The Holiday Party will serve 500 children either living in poverty, homeless shelters or transitioning out of shelter life.

Participating members of Greek Life will help set out, host the event and interact with the children who attend.

Rubye’s Kids provides school supplies for inner city elementary school children, computers for learning centers, books and furniture at homeless shelters along with donating gifts to families transitioning out of shelters. The organization also hosts birthday parties for children living in shelters.
