UNH sorority sisters raise funds for child abuse prevention
March 7, 2016
ELIOT, Maine — The fifth annual Dinner and Auction for Child Abuse Prevention once again united sorority sisters from The University of New Hampshire with a community charity that offers a myriad of programs designed to find ways to reduce the statistics of victims of a common social injustice.
Hosted by the Alpha Sigma Chapter of the Kappa Delta Sorority of the University of New Hampshire at the Regatta Room in Eliot on Saturday, the event raised money to help prevent child abuse. Of that money raised, 20 percent goes to Prevent Child Abuse America, the platform charity for Kappa Delta across the country. The remaining 80 percent is donated to the New Hampshire Children’s Trust.
Erica Spino, vice president of community service for the Kappa Deltas, said their efforts have grown with each year.“The first year, we raised $6,000,” said Spino. “Last year we raised $25,000 and we are hoping to match or better that amount this year.”
