Every year the fraternity and sorority community selects an organization to raise awareness about and to fundraise for during Greek Week. This year, they chose the Greater Cleveland Fisher House. A Fisher House, similar to a Ronald McDonald House, is for military family members to stay free-of-charge while their injured or ill loved one receives treatment, procedures, operations, or rehabilitation. The Goal of the Greater Cleveland Fisher House Organization is to raise $7,000,000 for the construction of a Fisher House (there are currently 62 houses in operation across the United States, Germany, and England) that will be located on the grounds of the Louis Stokes VA Hospital in Cleveland, the third largest VA hospital in the United States. After Greek Week events and a sold-out Lip Sync performance, the community raised over $3,500.

In addition, fraternity and sorority members joined JCU’s Student Veteran’s Club in sponsoring a fun evening where their strength was put to the test during a Military Challenge. The JCU fraternity and sorority community looks forward to more collaboration with these two wonderful organizations in the future.
