Beta Theta Pi Makes PB&Js for Open Door Ministries
HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 15, 2013 â€“ A peanut butter and jelly sandwich may seem like a simple dinner to some, but for those who donâ€™t know where their next meal is coming from, it makes a meaningful impact.
Beta Theta Pi, a fraternity relatively new to the High Point University campus, has hit the ground running on their philanthropic endeavors in the community by making 270 PB&J sandwiches for Open Door Ministries to serve to their clients. They made and delivered the sandwiches to Open Door, located just a mile away from the university.
Open Door Ministries serves three meals a day seven days a week at their Fatherâ€™s Table Food Kitchen to High Point residents in need.
Eric Krueger, a member of the fraternity, said their mission is to serve local nonprofits through all of their service work.
â€śWe feel that we can have a positive, more potent impact by keeping things local,â€ť Krueger says. â€śSome of our members have worked with Open Door Ministries before through their own service endeavors. We thought there was no better way to get a feel for the community than to go out and try things first hand. PB&Jâ€™s are a great way to support Open Door Ministries and to get everyone involved.â€ť
