Giving back to the community is a staple of Fraternity life. Delta Kappa Epsilon is proud of its members’ dedication to assisting those in their communities in addition to those in need. As many brothers would say, the fulfillment and satisfaction of helping out those in need is one of the most rewarding experiences of membership in Delta Kappa Epsilon.
For those brothers looking for ideas for a philanthropy or community service event, we have provided a toolkit that our partner, the USO, has provided for us to use.
