Hurricane Sandy relief and the women at Rutgers University donates $10,000
Over the past 12 years, the Foundation has activated the Twin Ideals Fund seven times. This fund enables Phi Sigma Sigma to respond immediately to a natural disaster or emergency situation. In 2011, we activated the fund to support the victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami, the spring tornadoes in the U.S., and last year for Hurricane Sandy. When the fund is activated, the Foundation researches non-profits that are taking a leadership role in the recovery. Selected groups are best equipped to offer assistance and have a proven track record for results. Through the generosity of our donors, we raised $7,642 to support relief efforts of the Red Cross, Save the Children and Rebuilding Together.
In partnership with our Gamma Nu Chapter at Rutgers University – New Brunswick a gift of $10,000 was made to the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund. The women at Rutgers University utilized their Chapter Educational Funds to support a local charity. This is the first time in our history that a Chapter Educational Fund has been used to support a local cause. We are very proud of the efforts of our Gamma Nu chapter to help their neighbors in need.
