DSP Donates Fundraising Profits

Truman’s chapter of Delta Sigma Pi recently donated more than $1,400 to Junior Achievement in Northern Missouri and West-Central Illinois to help educate children about financial responsibility.

Delta Sigma Pi raised funds through various activities, including selling hot chocolate at football games and soliciting donations for members to wear tutus and tiaras around campus. Junior Achievement will use the donation to help provide programs to more than 4,000 students in northern Missouri and western Illinois.

Approximately 200 community members volunteer their time through Junior Achievement each year. Truman’s Delta Sigma Pi members have volunteered at the Kirksville Primary School teaching children about financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship.

More information about Delta Sigma Pi, a co-ed professional fraternity, can be found at dsp.truman.edu. For information about volunteering with Junior Achievement, or teachers seeking JA volunteers in their classrooms, contact ddrebes@jastl.org.
