Beta Theta Pi Makes PB&Js for Open Door Ministries

01.15.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 15, 2013 – A peanut butter and jelly sandwich may seem like a simple dinner to some, but for those who don’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 Father’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.

“We feel that we can have a positive, more potent impact by keeping things local,” Krueger says. “Some 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&J’s are a great way to support Open Door Ministries and to get everyone involved.”
