North Carolina Gamma (Davidson) Raises $30,500 for Military Veterans



The North Carolina Gamma Chapter of Phi Delta Theta at Davidson College held their 4th annual Phis For GI’s event in Davidson, NC on Saturday, October 31. The event culminated their semester-long effort to raise money for a North Carolina-based nonprofit called “Support U.S. Armed Forces.”

Chapter President Bates Taylor announced on Wednesday morning that the Fraternity would be writing a $30,500 check to the organization.

“Our fourth year of Phis For GI’s was our best yet. Through generous online contributions, partnerships with local restaurants, and a variety of other avenues, our Fraternity was able to raise $30,500 for military veterans and their families this semester, far surpassing fundraising totals in the previous three years,” Taylor announced.

“We decided four years ago that we wanted to focus our philanthropic efforts on serving those who have first served us, and Support U.S. Armed Forces is an organization that caught our attention as one that is truly making a difference in the lives of veterans and their families,” Taylor continued. “The brothers of Phi Delta Theta care deeply about thanking, honoring, and serving our military veterans, and our success this year exemplifies that passion and commitment. ”

Support U.S. Armed Forces actively serves and assists military veterans and their families by providing deployment care packages, family assistance care packages, transitional programs and hosting military appreciation events.

In total, the brothers of North Carolina Gamma have raised over $65,000 for Support U.S. Armed Forces in the past four years. The event’s webpage can be found at www.PhisForGIs.com
