USD GREEK WEEK
USD GREEK WEEK STORY:
In May of 2019, we partnered with the University of San Diego’s Fraternity and Sorority Life organization to raise money and awareness for FirefighterAid and what we do. What began as a handwritten note on the floor of a station from two big-hearted University of San Diego students who wanted to help the firefighters who fight for their community’s safety, turned in to a fantastic fundraiser for our organization.
Over the course of two weeks, we raised over $7,000. The Greek Life chapters even had a friendly competition in which they did a comfort box supply drive. Their drive yielded enough items to create over 300 comfort bags! Now, that’s a lot of toothpaste, hand sanitizer and bandaids!
We’re sending a HUGE thank you to Mia Westphal and Gus Brigantino for all their support and dedication to making this project run so smoothly. It wouldn’t have been successful without them. Keep an eye out for the USD team at this year’s stair climb event. They go big and we can’t wait to see what they do next.
