FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As high school seniors prepare for the next phase of their lives, West Virginia University at Parkersburg's Phi Theta Kappa honor society is giving them an opportunity to make a difference -- at their high school graduations.
The Sigma Omega chapter of PTK is sponsoring "Project Graduation ... Feed a Body, Feed a Mind," a national initiative to help alleviate hunger and illiteracy.
"The community service project is designed to battle the social issues of hunger and illiteracy by collecting books and non-perishable food itemsand distributing them to local food pantries and shelters," explained Lori Tate, vice president of WVU Parkersburg's PTK chapter.
PTK members are attending area high school graduation practices to notify students about the project and distribute Project Graduation fliers for the students to take home to family members. On graduation day, chapter members will set up a table to collect donations of books and food items. Contributions will be distributed to needy recipients through community relief agencies and literacy organizations.
