Phi Theta Kappa is hosting an Almost Home Supply Drive for the Almost Home Animal Shelter in Fort Dodge, Iowa!
Phi Theta Kappa President Skylyr Wohlers explains the organization, “Phi Theta Kappa is a student lead organization based on four hallmarks; scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service. Through all of these hallmarks, we grow and learn to lead.”
Phi Theta Kappa completes many projects throughout the school year. “When deciding how and what projects to do members first brainstorm ideas then from there one is decided on. Next members plan out the steps necessary and act on the steps until the project is carried out,” described President Wohlers.
Sophomore Gabby Hackley brought this idea to the group. “I thought of this drive as something to do for a service project for our organization. We can’t do a lot of the activities that the group has done in the past because of COVID restrictions but this was one we could and I could not pass up on the opportunity to not get involved. I wanted our group to do this because we would get to help the animal shelter out and provide them with some much-needed items!” she expressed.
Donations can be dropped off at the Iowa Central Bookstore from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. until October 30th. Hackley said “So far there are a few donations already in the box and we are just getting started. There is still plenty of space in our box so keep bringing in the donations!” There are a number of items that are being collected from litter, food, cleaning, blankets, toys, and more! There is no certain goal for the number of items Phi Theta Kappa would like to collect, they are grateful for any and all donations and wish to make a difference.
“I just want to share that we are thankful for everyone that has donated so far and future donations,” Hackley added, “We are also accepting monetary donations that will be used for our chapter to go out and purchase more items that can be used at the shelter.”
“As president, I enjoy watching members step up and take action on a project. It also makes me happy to see the response of the project and how appreciative the recipients are of our donations,” Wohlers reflected on Hackley’s and other members’ efforts.
