FIJI at USC
"The USO lifts the spirits of America's troops and their families." That is the mission statement of the United Service Organization, a private non-profit that works tirelessly to help support our troops and their loved ones. As one of the two national philanthropic organizations associated with the fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta the colony at the University of South Carolina has collectively decided to put our philanthropic emphasis for the year on the USO. We will be hosting a Humvee Pull, an event where different teams can compete to see who can pull a 5,300 pound Humvee a predetermined distance in the shortest time. If we reach our goal of 1500 dollars through this event we will be able to provide 4,200 calls home from our troops on the front lines or send 100 care packages or allow 150 servicemen or women to read a bedtime story to their children. No matter what we end up doing, the point is that we can do a lot to make a difference in these people's lives.
