Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s chapter at Nicholls State University had the pleasure of raising money and distributing meals to victims of Hurricane Ida recently.
The chapter’s Feed & Fund Lafourche event served over 2,000 hot plate lunches and distributed $15,000 worth of grocery gift cards to the victims of Hurricane Ida on September 19.
The men served victims hot jambalaya and white beans along with 525 gift cards to the local grocery store.
The chapter was also supported by Nicholls State’s Delta Zeta chapter and various alumni groups to make the event happen.
“I think what touched me the most about the whole process of helping organize this event was how quickly and readily available our alumni were to help,” Eminent Archon Remy Lodrigues said. “They saw a need to help and the impact this event would have on our community, and they ran with it. I was also heavily impressed at how eager our new members were to help. Both of those statements prove the fact that you are a True Gentleman for life. No matter what path life leads you down after you graduate, you will always have your brothers to lean on in your most vulnerable times.”
You can still donate money to the cause. So far, the fundraiser has 172 donors that have totaled $24,786 with a goal to reach $30,000. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to support some of the hardest-hit victims living in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana.
