HIGH POINT, N.C., April 15, 2010 – High Point University’s chapter of Theta Chi fraternity raised more than $750 to support earthquake relief efforts in Chile.
The earthquake, which stuck the nation on Feb. 7, killed more than 400 people and left more than 1.5 million displaced.
“We wanted to help the people of Chile during this time of struggle and grief,” says Paul Goins, Theta Chi’s public relations chair. “We worked hard and did what we could to raise as much as possible.”
The brothers of Theta Chi raised money by going around campus asking for student donations as well as through private contributions.
