This story won’t get a lot of play elsewhere. It’s fraternity news that doesn’t involve a pledge dying or brothers luring girls back to their rape dungeon. No animals were harmed and there are no banners to be offended by. Today, we’re actually reporting something that happens on a fairly often basis: a fraternity helping out the community and those less fortunate around them.
Jesus, I almost fell asleep typing that sentence. Are you still there? I know, I know. Who gives a shit about the poor? Unless, of course, a chapter throws a party theme that could be interpreted as mocking those underprivileged individuals. That could get clicks. Certainly goes with the fraternities are Satan’s cumshots rhetoric the media has going on.
Instead, we’re stuck with this happy go lucky report.
Lambda Chi Alpha at the University of North Dakota dropped off grocery bags on the doorsteps of Grand Forks houses earlier in the week with a note asking residents for donations of non-perishable items and to give what they can to donate to St. Josephs Social Care. Brothers picked up those bags this weekend and hauled in an impressive 8,000 pounds of food.
From WDAY 6:
Maria LeBlanc/St. Josephs Social Care Case Manager, “They have been so good to us. They also volunteer in our food pantry every Thursday night during the school year, so through the Fall and through the Spring we have lots of help from them.”
This year’s donations beats last year’s record by 2,000 pounds.
They’ve been “so good” to you, Maria? Really? Are you sure you weren’t roofied before saying that? You weren’t? Well that’s not getting pageviews. How can I spin this into more of a headline story? I…I…I got nothing. Tip of the cap to UND Lambda Chi..
