CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The brothers of the Texas Chi Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi are giving back to the Corpus Christi community with their recently launched “SigEp Summer Service Series.” This summer, they have walked and bathed nearly 40 dogs, inspected and repackaged meat, and helped tend to a future butterfly garden.
“The SigEp Summer Service Series is perfect because it’s something that helps bring brothers together during the summer to participate in something that aligns with our principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love,” said Michael Gandara, Chapter President.
The brothers have come together and worked with three different organizations throughout the series: PALS Animal Shelter, the Corpus Christi Food Bank, and the city’s Adopt-A-Park program.
The idea of the summer service series originated with new member, Gabriel Cisneros, after wanting to see his fraternity brothers more involved in local service. However, to avoid the risk of over-programming during the semester, Gandara came up with the idea of having the service events in the summer.
SigEp is very proud of the service series and have earned respect and recognition from the university, its headquarters, and other campus organizations among other entities.
