In holding this event, the Eta Psi chapter of Kappa Delta Sorority joined thousands of Kappa Deltas across the nation in the fundraising efforts to benefit local affiliates and chapters of Prevent Child Abuse America. Eighty percent of the proceeds will remain in North Carolina, benefitting the Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina.  The remaining 20 percent will go to Prevent Child Abuse America, Kappa Delta’s national philanthropy, for nationwide public awareness programs.

“Campbell and Associates jumped at the opportunity to be a major sponsor for the UNCC Delta Kappa 2nd annual pancake breakfast because we understand the importance of protecting children, who are our future. By making our donation, we are happy to have helped raise awareness and contributed towards a great organization which offers support to defenseless children” said Clair Campbell, managing partner of Campbell & Associates.

Healthy families mean healthy children, healthy communities, a thriving economy, and a strong nation. Investments in the prevention of child abuse support healthy child development and lower the number of children affected by abuse and neglect, and the financial cost to our nation in turn.

Child abuse and neglect affects over 1 million children every year and according to Prevent Child Abuse America’s recently released report, Estimated Annual Cost of Child Abuse and Neglect April 2012,a staggering $80 billion was spent in direct and indirect coststo address child abuse and neglect. These costs include foster care, medical and mental health treatment, and later for special education, juvenile and adult crime, chronic health problems and other costs across the life span. Child abuse and neglect are preventable.
