BENEFITING: Orange County, NC, Habitat for Humanity
EVENT DATE: Apr 01, 2016
In 2009, DKE brothers banded together to raise the funds and build a home to honor the legacy of our brother and former president, Courtland Benjamin Smith. Courtland lived out the values that made the DKE house special—so, there was no better way to celebrate his life than by building a Habitat home and funding a playground where children could play. The tie with Habitat that began with building Courtland’s house continues. Since our start, we have proudly contributed more than $215,000 and volunteered 3,750 hours. We are now spearheading the fifth annual partnership between fraternities and Habitat, which we call The Brothers Project. Through a mix of philanthropy and service, seven fraternities are collaborating to build homes around the Chapel Hill area. This year we have set an ambitious goal of raising $15,000. You can help!
