Greek Week Initiative
MSU Greek Week 2016 seeks to benefit local charities in the Greater East Lansing and Lansing areas through fun team competitions. Each team consists of a sorority paired with one large and one small fraternity. They have over 1,500 donors and have surpassed their goal of $80K!
Their team leaderboards show the top teams by service hours alongside the top teams by amount raised with the leading team currently at over 1,200 service hours and over $16,000.00 raised!
