UW Theta Chi Kicks-off Madison Magazine Bundling for Literacy

Thank you to Sherri, our Volunteer Coordinator, and the members of the University of Wisconsin Theta Chi Fraternity – Sam, Joe, Karsten, Jack, Alec, and Eric – who sorted and created 14 recycled magazine bundles for literacy. Theta Chi has a strong tradition of philanthropy in the Madison community.  The group gathered at the first of our monthly “First Sunday” magazine bundling events organized to sort and package magazines for posting in our online Magazine Literacy Marketplace.  The bundles of recycled magazines, donated by consumers and businesses coast-to-coast, will be delivered to literacy programs for at-risk readers – children and families in homeless and domestic violence shelters, mentoring and job training programs, hungry families fed by food pantries, and foster children.
