HPU Fraternity Helps Children Learn Disaster Education

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 26, 2009 – Members of Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity at High Point University recently participated in a philanthropy event at Chick-Fil-A that helped children and families learn disaster education.

The fraternity sent several members to participate in the project, which was made possible through the American Red Cross. Members of the fraternity dressed up in Red Cross costumes – disaster dog, blood hound, blood drop and first aid fox. They also colored safety-related pictures with the children. Some members even went outside of the drive-through to wave at children passing through the area.

The fraternity partners with the Red Cross in “Blood, Sweat and Cash” – a program that commits to donating blood and contributing service hours and raising money.
