UNC fraternity Delta Kappa Epsilon Beta Chapter has donated $17,600 of their leftover dues to TABLE, a non-profit that provides hunger relief and nutritional education to children living in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and surrounding communities.
“We started brainstorming ideas of what to do with our dues after classes were cancelled,” Vance Brice, president of UNC's DKE chapter, said. “We wanted to help a charity during these unprecedented times.”
The fraternity also donated all of the food they had left over in their food pantry to the non-profit, DKE Treasurer Chris Vaughan said.
"It was amazing to see how quickly we put the plan into action, even though we’re all apart," Vaughan said. “We have had overwhelming support and we’re glad we can make a difference towards the local community.”
Brice said that Meg Miller, DKE's house mother, has contributed to the organization before, which helped the fraternity decide to donate.
