In Wake Of Terrorist Attack, Greek Community Steps Up

The events in Chattanooga, Tennessee on the morning of July 16, are nothing short of tragic. The shootings at two Tennessee military centers left four marines dead, many others injured, and the rest of us in emotional turmoil. It was a senseless terror attack, the consequences of which were fatal.

Kappa Alpha and the Greek community at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, would not stand for this on their soil, in their city. They’ve immediately started raising money for the families and victims of this terrible shooting in what they’re calling a Fund for Fallen Chattanooga Heroes.

From their tilt page:

The entire Chattanooga community has been torn apart today by an unimaginable tragedy. A senseless crime. Though many details are still unknown, it is clear that we as a whole need to support our fallen heroes. We are deeply saddened by the deaths and injuries to our officers in uniform.

In just a day, the community has raised over $1,000 and has hopes of at least doubling that, but hopefully going well beyond. As the UT Greeks stated, no gift is too small for our heroes. To donate, click here.
