A few weeks ago eastern North Carolina was rocked with vicious rain and wind from Hurricane Matthew. They city of Greenville was inaccessible for nearly a week. Many people in the community lost everything they had. That’s when some Chi Phi Brothers decided to help out. Several brothers helped unload a truck full of supplies for those who lost everything. The other volunteers said that the help our Brothers provided saved them many hours of work.
On October 21st, the Epsilon Theta Chapter teamed up with some sisters of the Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority at East Carolina to help put on a Harvest Festival at the Boys and Girls Club of Beaufort County. The Harvest Festival provided an enjoyable time for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club. They were able to get their faces painted, they had a dance party and several inflatable bounce houses; our Brothers also constructed a haunted house for the kids to go through while the brothers dressed up in costume and attempted to spook the kids. The event concluded with a dance show by several of the kids. The experience was exceptionally fulfilling for the Brothers as we were able to bond over the building of the haunted house, while providing joy to the youth.
Finally on Sunday, October 23rd, Epsilon Theta Brothers once again paired up with some sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha to participate in the East Carolina Women’s Volleyball Think Pink game. Brothers passed out pink ribbons and other pink items in support of all of those who have had to deal with the terrible disease of Breast Cancer. After the match began, our Brothers helped cheer our girls on to a victory over UCONN. In the midst of all the fun a few brothers even participated in the halftime festivities, during which they dressed up like volleyball players and tried to serve the ball over the net in front of the whole crowd. The PA announcer was kind enough to give our Chapter a shout out over the PA system, thanking us for our contributions to raise breast cancer awareness. Needless to say our brothers enjoyed themselves while helping ZTA with their philanthropy event.
