Greeks Give Back Collects Food for Area Youth

There will be less hunger among the children of Russellville this summer because of a volunteer effort by fraternity and sorority members at Arkansas Tech University.

Greek students at ATU collected 33,152 food items during the 2018 Greeks Give Back event. The donated food was gathered at Tucker Coliseum on Monday, April 2, and delivered to elementary schools in the Russellville School District on Tuesday, April 3.

The items will be sent home with students to ensure they have access to easily prepared, nutritious food during the summer months.

“It means so much to be able to give back to the community because, as a Tech student, this community does so much for our campus,” said John Sisco, an ATU junior from Fort Smith and one of the organizers of the 2018 Greeks Give Back. “It’s an honor to give back to their kids and help out in any way we can.”
