In response to the COVID-19 outbreak happening around the world, the UNC Panhellenic Council has decided to donate $5,000 to UNC Hospitals. Currently, UNC Hospitals are partnering with local Chapel Hill restaurants to deliver to hospital staff each Wednesday.
The Panhellenic Council chose this cause in order to support both UNC—Chapel Hill as well as local restaurants. The Panhellenic Council wanted to give back to those staff working to battle COVID-19 on campus. Additionally, local businesses around the country are being impacted by COVID-19, especially many Chapel Hill businesses that thrive off of the no longer present student population on campus. The Panhellenic Council is thrilled to give back to UNC—Chapel Hill hospital staff and the Town of Chapel Hill businesses.
The Panhellenic Council is proud to support various philanthropies, including those philanthropies of our chapters. Unfortunately, there have been many cancelled philanthropy events within the Panhellenic community following the closure of UNC—Chapel Hill. The UNC Panhellenic Council decided that as the governing body for all sororities at UNC—CH, we want to maintain our commitment to serving others and serve as an example for the Panhellenic community. We look forward to seeing the efforts of our individual chapters to help ease the strain on those who have been severely impacted by COVID-19.
Grace Hawley, President of the UNC Panhellenic Council, said, “As members of the council, our mission is to promote excellence in the community. We are passionate about helping those in need during these unprecedented times and are thankful we are able to donate to such a wonderful cause to help hospital workers and support local businesses.”
