Sigma Psi's Mr. CWRU
Organized by: Emily Pestello
As members of the Case Western Reserve University community, every member of our organization has been touched in some way by issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, or other power based relationship violence. As sisters of Sigma Psi, we want to take a stand on our campus and in the greater community to act as advocates for those going through these situations and as a support network for those trying to heal. Within the larger Cleveland, OH community, we are proud to support the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center (CRCC) in any way we can. We have sisters who volunteer there as advocates on their 24 hr hotline and we use our position on campus to raise what we can to help them continue the vital work that they do each day. Sigma Psi is a 119 year old local Sorority at Case Western Reserve University and each year we put on a large-scale philanthropy event to benefit the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. This year, Mr. CWRU will occur in late November and will act as a culmination of a year's worth of fundraising efforts. As a local sorority, we have the power to choose a philanthropic cause that directly impacts our community. We are proud to support the great work that the CRCC does every day to support, heal, and empower those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault in the Cleveland area. If you would like to learn more about the CRCC or are willing to donate your time directly as a volunteer, please visit their website to learn how you can get involved at https://www.clevelandrapecrisis.org/! Additionally, if you are in need of support, you can reach their dedicated volunteers through their 24-hour hotline at (216) 619-6192. Thank you for your support!
