Delta Tau Delta Makes Two Special Donations


Delta Tau Delta Donates & Brings Easter to LUM

Members of the Gamma Lambda Chapter of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity volunteer regularly at the LUM Protein Food Pantry in downtown Lafayette and are very helpful. They recently surprised LUM with two special donation. First, the fraternity members prepared beautiful 48 Easter baskets filled with treats for each of the students enrolled in the LUM After School Program. The students were thrilled, and the teachers were touched by their kindness and generosity. Second, the chapter also made a donation to LUM for $616.22 to support the LUM Good Samaritan Fund.

LUM is fortunate to have such great support from Purdue students and the members of Purdue student organizations and Greek-letter organizations. Special thanks to the members of the Purdue Delts for this special, surprise gift for the LUM students.

Purdue Chapter Donates Gift Baskets to Shelter

As a part of their national initiative, “Operation AKA Assist,” the members of the Epsilon Rho Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. at Purdue created 40 baskets for LUM to distribute to our clients experiencing homelessness. The baskets included snacks, personal hygiene items and an encouraging note from the students. In addition to assembling the baskets, their event included teaching the members about homelessness and the mission and programs of LUM.

Mamie Johnson, secretary, and Anyah Cork, chaplain, recently delivered the baskets to LUM on behalf of their sorority (pictured). The baskets have already been distributed to individuals experiencing homelessness through the LUM Emergency Shelter and Protein Food Pantry. LUM is grateful to have the support of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and appreciate that they took the time to learn more about homelessness in their university community. Thanks again to the members of the Epsilon Rho Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. at Purdue.
