The third day of Greek Week was Philanthropy Day, and members of the fraternity and sorority community selected Habitat for Humanity as the week’s philanthropy.
The Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and Panhellenic Association raised $34,141 from over 750 supporters as of the 8 p.m. cutoff. The fundraising goal for Wednesday’s single-day fundraiser was $10,000.
Each year, the Elon University campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity raises money and provides the labor needed to build a house for a family in Alamance County who is in need of safe, quality and affordable housing.
Kappa Delta raised the most money and totaled $15,313. Alpha Omicron Pi came in second, raising $11,798. The two organizations were the only to surpass the $10,000 mark as individual organizations. The fraternity that raised the most money was Sigma Pi, raising $1,065.
Students were also encouraged to volunteer at the registration tables for both the American Red Cross blood drive and the Gift of Life. They could also donate blood.
