The Mississippi Beta chapter of Pi Beta Phi at Ole Miss presented the Lafayette County Literacy Council (LCLC) with a donation of over $6,300 to use towards their literacy programs on Thursday, April 28, 2016.

“We are so fortunate to have a nonprofit which also aims to raise money and awareness for childhood literacy right here in Oxford,” said Virginia Summer, Vice President of Philanthropy of Pi Beta Phi Mississippi Beta. “The Lafayette County Literacy Council has not only given our girls a greater opportunity to expand on our philanthropy, but also has given our girls the chance to touch the lives and be touched by the lives of the children right here in Oxford through the gift of literacy.”

The donation comes from the the Pi Beta Phi Foundation’s Local Impact Grant Program, where undergraduate chapters can nominate local nonprofit organizations to receive gifted funds and the Foundation will provide a matching donation. The Mississippi Beta chapter at Ole Miss and the Pi Beta Phi Foundation contributed over $3,100 each towards the Lafayette County Literacy Council.

Throughout the year, Pi Beta Phi members have also volunteered at LCLC events and programs.
