Greeks Donate ‘Penny Wars’ Money to Local Food Pantry

10.9.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 9, 2013 – High Point University’s Greek organizations recently donated more than $1,500 to Hand to Hand Food Pantry in High Point.

The pantry on Penny Road is an outreach program of Parkwood Baptist Church. It provides food, clothing and other necessities for dozens of families struggling to make ends meet.

The money was raised during the “Penny Wars” competition, in which every Greek organization on HPU’s campus competed to raise the most funds. This year, the team of Sigma Sigma Sigma, Kappa Sigma and Kappa Alpha Psi raised the most money and chose to give the money to the food pantry.

“We are humbled by the opportunity to contribute to this incredible cause,” says Matt Jakubowski, president of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. “Hand to Hand Food Pantry’s efforts are inspiring, and it is with great pride and compassion that we make this donation.”

The “Penny Wars” fundraiser was all part of HPU’s Greek Week, which teams up Greek organizations for a week of competition and fundraising.
