The Eta Gamma chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is focused on serving others. So, when the opportunity presented itself to prepare meals for the homeless or needy, they took it. Members recently met at the home of President Rebekah Morris and prepared 80 breakfast entrees for Watered Gardens in Joplin, Mo.
“I get asked all the time, what is Phi Theta Kappa? My response is Phi Theta Kappa is an organization about being the best you possible,” said Tamika Harrel, Phi Theta Advisor at Coffeyville Community College. “The night we all got together is the essence of what Phi Theta Kappa is about. The ability to get together as a group and make breakfast entrees for Watered Gardens is the type of service project that makes Phi Theta Kappa a great organization."
"The members of Eta Gamma were so cohesive that night," continued Harrel. "We created an assembly line of cooking, stuffing, and wrapping the burritos. It ran smooth, and the members were able to experience fellowship with one another, while engaging in a great service opportunity. It helped that the burrito’s turned out to be delicious.”
Watered Gardens began as a neighborhood outreach, and has grown to a variety of services and basic items for many families. Services include meals, visitation ministry, shelter, and much more.
