Several fraternities and sororities on Tennessee Tech’s campus came together to make a huge donation to the Putnam County Animal Shelter. The local shelter is a nonprofit organization and relies on generous donations and these organizations wanted to help. The shelter was running low on food and other supplies, so these local organizations stepped up and created a rally to gather the supplies. Multiple of the frats and sororities participated. The groups collected donations from their members of dog and cat food, cat litter and other resources the shelter was in need of.
“We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the incredible Sororities and Fraternities of TN Tech! They organized a donation drive to round up supplies for our shelter, and they absolutely blew it out of the water! We would like to thank Phi Mu, Kappa Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Delta Gamma, Sigma Chi, Fiji, and Alpha Delta Pi for their incredible generosity,” the Putnam County animal Shelter said on their Facebook page.
“It was exciting to get to donate to the animal shelter. I am from Cookeville and the animal shelter has given so many local pets a loving home, and It was really cool to be able to be a part of that. Giving just a simple bag of food is helping these animals. As sorority women we get to help multiple organizations, and I’m glad the local animal shelter got to be one of them.” Baylor Johnston, member of Kappa Delta, said.
“Greek life is a big organization on Tech’s campus and when we all come together we can do some pretty great things. It is such a good feeling to see all of these organizations come together to donate the supplies to the shelter. They posted a photo of some boys dropping the items off and wrote a message of how appreciative they were. It’s a really good feeling,” Johnston said.
