THE STORY:

Matt Maxwell wrote -

Lambda Chi Alpha prides itself as one of Feeding America's greatest annual contributors. This fall, our fraternity plans to continue hosting its yearly Watermelon Bash but with a much more personal mindset. Last year, October 2015, Columbia endured some of the most disastrous flooding in its history - placing our community in the national spotlight. Although most of campus was lucky enough to hold against the devastation, we all know that numerous families and homes weren't so fortunate. Since the flood, many of us have been inspired by the strength that came from the Midland's resilience and stewardship during the trying time. We all have seen the incredible power of a community devoted to action and self-restoration. Our fraternity hopes to take the lessons from this tragedy and the conviction that Columbia carries to partner with the local food bank - Harvest Hope - to raise disaster relief boxes in preparation for future tribulations and to end the ever-present lack of food that burdens the less fortunate in our area. Please join us in the fight!
