Emergency funding via DKFF, Inc. was sent to several of our Kappa sisters who were affected by the devastating 2021 fires in Boulder County. At the same time Denver Kappas supplied baby goods to Boulder Adventist Hospital as their NICU baby supplies were smoke damaged and needed replacements.
Holiday sharing donations are collected at our Founders Day celebration annually and three Kappa sisters received gifts and cards from DAA members.
Reach Out and Read Colorado, RORCO, is sponsored by DAA at Doctors Care Clinic in downtown Littleton. This statewide early literacy and early relationships health nonprofit provides books and tools to support healthy family reading habits to families in need. Every child from birth to five years old receives a brand new book and interaction with trained medical staff during their biannual wellness visits. Books are the exam room tool to evaluate child development and discuss literacy skills with parents. Kappa’s sponsorship provided over 400 books this year. Masks of all sizes were sewn by Kappas and donated to keep the families at Doctors Care safer during the pandemic.
