A special thanks to the men from the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at the University of Washington for their many hours of volunteering at The Salvation Army in White Center (Seattle).

The men spent a sunny afternoon cleaning up the exterior and interior areas of the buildings last month – landscaping, pruning trees, painting, and more.


“These young men were very impressive,” said Major Raymond Erickson-King. “They gave up their own time, and worked very hard to improve the appearance of our building. We are so appreciative of their efforts.”

Beta Theta Pi is a long-standing fraternity at UW, well-known for its success in the classroom and beyond. The group has a tradition of philanthropic projects, although this was the first visit to The Salvation Army. Many of the members said they’d like to make it an annual project.
