Kappa Delta

Prevent Child Abuse America

Since 1984, Kappa Delta collegiate and alumnae chapters have held Shamrock events — local fundraisers that vary from pancake breakfasts and 5K runs to silent auctions and golf tournaments — to support the prevention of child abuse. Shamrock events, staged by thousands of Kappa Delta women in hundreds of communities nationwide, are held throughout the year and have earned local and national media attention.

Every year, KD collegiate and alumnae chapters raise more than $2 million to benefit child abuse prevention efforts. A full 80 percent of the money raised stays in the community and is donated to local child-abuse prevention agencies; the remaining 20 percent goes to the Kappa Delta Foundation to support Prevent Child Abuse America’s national office for its national programs. PCAA was founded by a Kappa Delta, the late Donna Stone, Lambda-Northwestern, which makes the cause that much more relevant to the sorority.

KD hosts Shamrock events throughout the country in which members volunteer their time to raise money for local and national child abuse prevention.  This project has enabled Kappa Delta to contribute over $7.1 million to charity since the project began in 1981. The Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Delta at LSU is honored to participate in the efforts in preventing child abuse across America and throughout the state of Louisiana.

Epsilon Chapter sells jambalaya at the Wearin’ of the Green, St. Patrick's Day Parade in Baton Rouge each Spring. (Visit http://www.wearinofthegreen.com/ for more information regarding the parade and to learn about one of Baton Rouge’s most popular holidays!) This is our 28th year continuing the tradition of selling jambalaya on the parade route. It is a fun and interactive way for us to raise money for Prevent Child Abuse and to bring awareness to such a worthy cause.

In 2017, Epsilon raised a little over $95,000 for Prevent Child Abuse. 80% of our profit goes directly to Baton Rouge’s Children’s Advocacy Center, a local organization whose mission is to provide children and their families a solid path to healing and justice through efficient, coordinated and trauma-informed child focused services in the aftermath of abuse or violent crime. Epsilon chapter has been honored to be able to make such a large contribution to such an amazing organization.
