“The building is a safe haven for men who defended our country with bravery and honor, and it was an honor for Gamma Theta to do something for them in return.”
In February, the Gamma Theta Chapter of Louisiana State University partnered up with the Baton Rouge Mid-City Redevelopment Alliance (MCRA) to clean up a shelter for homeless male Veterans in the city.
Ten Members, signed up for one of two shifts (8 am-noon and noon-4 pm) restored the crumbling exterior by scrubbing and repainting the worn down walls. Members also aided in restoring the roof of the shelter.
The Gamma Theta Chapter had to use risk management for this event: “Since the project involved physical labor, the use of ladders and accessing the roof of the shelter, Brothers were briefed on safe practices by MCRA employees upon arrival of the worksite. Brothers emergency contact forms were also on hand throughout the event.”
“Gamma Theta is proud to have contributed to giving back to United States Veterans, providing them with a safe place just as they have done for us.”
