Each spring the Zeta Eta chapter puts on our biggest service event of the year with our Pig Pickin' for CASA. A catered barbeque dinner is served at Player's Corner and the event is open to all Wofford students, faculty and staff as well as the Spartanburg community. Pig Pickin’ is sponsored by local businesses, and sisters also sell tickets so everyone at and around Wofford has a chance to support CASA services. This year Pig Pickin' will be held on April 25th from 5:00-7:00pm. We look forward to raising more funds for CASA!
Zeta Eta’s local philanthropies are Guardian Ad Litem, the Spartanburg affiliate of CASA, and the Ellen Hines Smith Girls' Home.
Other philanthropic projects include a Christmas project for under privileged children in conjunction with Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, volunteering at the Humane Society, Terrier Play Day, Wofford's Halloween Carnival, Math Academy, Wofford Pen Pals, and many others. Thetas are also involved in Alpha Phi Omega, the national service fraternity, as well as Success Initiative, Bonner Scholars, and Twin Towers, among other organizations. Additionally, our sisters work in conjuction with the Ellen Hines Smith Girls' Home in Spartanburg, spending time with girls living there.
We work to support The Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation, the philanthropic arm of our fraternity which serves many purposes. The Foundation assists college women through financial assistance, contemporary programming in alcohol abuse prevention, leadership development training, and more.
