February 01, 2017
ALLIANCE, Ohio – On January 26, Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity hosted its first Stop Hunger Now community service event where over 11,000 meals were packaged and sent across the world.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon invited the fraternity and sorority community to help package meals. Over 175 members signed up for the event and made the event possible. With the participants working together, they had exceeded their goal of 10,000 meals and sent over 11,000 meals. These meals will be sent to Africa.
Stop Hunger Now works to see a world without hunger. They want to achieve this goal by working with organizations to help package food. After packaging it, Stop Hunger Now sends out across the world to countries who need it most.
Sophomore criminal justice and sociology major Nathan Blaydes coordinated the event. Blaydes serves as the community service chair for Sigma Alpha Epsilon and serves as the Interfraternity Council’s community service and philanthropy chair.
Blaydes said, “I wanted to be able to bring all the chapters on campus together to work for a common cause and goal. I love that we all have different philanthropies and we support them separately, but I wanted to be able to support one cause as one Greek community.”
