Fraternity constructs amenities for individuals with disabilities

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The men of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity will create accessible amenities for people with disabilities across the nation in their national construction program, Build America.

The 21 member team will construct a "life-enriching environment" at Camp Allyn in Batavia beginning July 28 through August 1.

Construction began at Camp Allyn at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday and the team later committed to nightly activities with the campers, who are individuals with disabilities.

Camp Allyn will receive a check for $5,000 to cover the cost of materials in addition to 500 hours of labor from the men of the fraternity. The team will ultimately save the camp $10,000 in labor and material costs.

The team will do work in seven states before ending its six week trip in Washington, D.C.
