In the historic aftermath of a devastating tornado in Alabama, it didn't take long for sorority women and fraternity men to gather forces and roll up their sleeves.
Four fraternity houses on campus are now serving as an open kitchen, said Patrick Morris, a Delta Kappa Epsilon who reported the effort began by just cooking and preparing food and getting it out into surrounding neighborhoods.
As of this week, the UA Greek Relief Fund effort based at the University of Alabama is serving 10,000 hot meals a day - providing enough food and meals to cover nearly a third of the affected area torn by the devastating storm.
As Morris reported from campus: "The entire Greek community is involved."
More than 342 people were killed in the wake of the tornado outbreak, according to news reports, and hundreds may still be missing.
With classes and exams cancelled due to the devastation, Getwan said everyone reached into the food stocks at the houses to make sure the food did not go to waste. She also pulled an alumni database to get the word out electronically-asking for any kind of donations that could be put to use.
"It's coming in and we're sending it out," she said, noting the supplies and donations have included everything from Ramen noodles to cookies and even grills to keep cooking the donations that are pouring in.
Sixteen sororities on the UA campus are NPC member groups. Senior and Delta Delta Delta member Meg McCrummen was also featured recently on NBC Nightly News.
