After the kids finished their homework, they filed outside to see a yard and basketball court speckled with brightly colored plastic Easter eggs. The kids jumped and squealed with excitement. Ready…Set…Go! And they took off!
The hunt was on! Easter came early on March 26 at the local Boys and Girls Club, thanks to local fraternity Beta Theta Pi and sorority Pi Beta Phi.
This is the second year Beta and Pi Phi has teamed up to spend time with kids and brighten their day.
“This is something I’m trying to make more of an annual thing that is set in stone –– something we do every year,” said Robert “Scooter” Smith, Beta’s philanthropy chair, who was in charge of coordinating the hunt. “It’s easy, it’s fun, the kids love it, and I personally like seeing the kids really enjoy it.”
