Greeks Raise More Than $20,000 for Charity

Through its annual Greek Week, March 23-28, the Truman Greek community raised more than $20,000 for three philanthropic efforts.

The majority of the proceeds, $16,551, were donated to the Norhteast Missouri Inclusion Project. The project, led by members of the former NEMO Disability Community Group, is a grassroots campaign that strives to build a free, public playground filled with fun and accessible equipment where children, with or without disabilities, can play together. The playground will be built adjacent to the Adair County YMCA.

In addition, $4,000 was donated to the Greek Life Endowed Scholarship Fund, which supports awarding scholarships to Greek leaders who exemplify the four pillars of Truman Greek Life.

The Greek community also showed support for its newest member by donating $300 to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD). ANAD is the national philanthropy of Delta Phi Epsilon, a recent Panhellenic sorority added to Truman Greek Life.

Greek Week at Truman is the celebration and promotion of the Greek Life Pillars: scholarship, leadership, integrity and commitment. Greek Week is a time for Greeks to give back to their campus and community.
