GetSomeGreek & Alpha Sigma Alpha

to present donation to the Red Cross

American Red Cross Greater Ozarks Region, Joplin MO ~ 11/30/2011

GetSomeGreek and Alpha Sigma Alpha will be presenting a check to
American Red Cross, Joplin Executive, Dave Dillon, on Tuesday, December
6, 2011 at 9:00 AM. The presentation will be in the ballroom of
Billingsly Student Center; Room #335 on the MSSU Campus in Joplin, MO.

Upon hearing of the devastation to the Joplin community, Gerard Ewing,
co-owner of GetSomeGreek, contacted Alpha Sigma Alpha about partnering
with them to promote T-shirts that would raise money for the Joplin
community. GetSomeGreek designed and donated the shirts and Alpha Sigma
Alpha promoted the shirts to their members for purchase. The shirts were
also promoted to members of other fraternities and sororities across the
U.S. via social media channels. Alpha Sigma Alpha's Zeta Alpha Chapter
is located at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, MO. Many of
the members' families as well as alumnae in the area were affected by
the tornados. The long standing relationship that GetSomeGreek and Alpha
Sigma Alpha have was the vehicle that allowed the two organizations to
partner for a much needed cause

Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority is dedicated to developing women of poise and
purpose. Since its founding in 1901 at Longwood University in Farmville,
VA, the sorority has grown into a strong organization consisting of more
than 165 collegiate and alumnae chapters and associations nationwide.
Alpha Sigma Alpha is headquartered in Indianapolis.

GetSomeGreek is a custom and retail fashion supplier dedicated to the
fraternity and sorority market across North America. Opening in 2004,
GetSomeGreek has supplied products to organizations on more than 500
college campuses and to individuals across the United States and Canada.
GetSomeGreek is headquartered in St. Louis, MO.
