It seems as though the beginning of spring kicks off the season for philanthropy events for most sororities and fraternities. Personally, my sorority has two upcoming walks in the next two weeks. Spring is definitely the time you want to do these walks(Especially the ones that are on the beach as many are here in Long Island). Here at Something Greek we see a lot of great philanthropy on each organization's Facebook page.
In honor of National Volunteer Week, we thought we'd take a moment to recognize you! So while you get all your fraternity or sorority clothes in order for your walk, check these out! Sigma Nu's Epsilon Xi chapter recently played in a charity bowl that raised $85,000 for an individual with a spinal cord injury. Alpha Sigma Phi has declared today Pink Sock Friday in support of Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure. Delta Delta Delta passed their goal of raising $10,000 for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Phi Kappa Psi has plans to spend their summer helping the Boys and Girls Club of America in San Antonio, Texas. Phi Delta Theta's Gamma chapter raised $3,000 for ALS at their annual Phish Fry. A member of Pi Beta Phi has been nominated as "Woman of the Year" by the Lukemia and Lymphoma Society
