OU Alpha Gam Fire Recovery
The University of Oklahoma Alpha Gamma Delta Chapter House caught on fire the night of January 14th.
http://www.normantranscript.com/previous/x1724058898/Fire-at-Alpha-Gamma-Delta-house There is not much information at this time on the cause of the fire, but some women will have lost nearly all their belongings within the house. Any money raised will help provide for needs during the semester. To be clear, this money is to help the women of the Alpha Gam Upsilon Chapter's personal needs from school to clothing items. This is not a part of the housing association of Alpha Gamma Delta. If there are precise items requested this page will update.

In the wake of the fire at the Upsilon Chapter house, the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation has established a brand new Disaster Relief Fund for sisters to help provide immediate emergency disaster support to our sisters facing a disaster in their life due to fire, natural disasters or domestic violence. With your help, the first recipients of this fund will be our collegiate sisters of Upsilon Chapter. Each sister displaced by the fire will receive a $500 grant to help meet her immediate needs of food, housing, bedding, toiletries, clothing, transportation, school supplies, school books, etc. Please help us help our sisters with a gift to this fund! Be sure to note Disaster Relief Fund when making your online gift at https://secure.willowmarketing.com/agdfoundation/site/donate/. Upsilon sisters with more long-term needs will be encouraged to apply for additional support through our long-standing SIS Grant program. With your help, our new fund will stand ready and waiting to support our Upsilon and other sisters who find themselves facing disaster in their lives.
I don't know what to say to those who have donated. Thank you just does not seem like enough. I know those who were not quite as lucky appreciate this in every way possible. Even in one of the worst nights of our lives, we are reminded of how incredibly blessed and loved we are. You all are wonderful.
Thank you SO much for everyone's support. I know that it means so much to me and my fellow sisters to know that so many people care in our time of loss. But we are just very blessed that none of us were seriously injured in the fire. Thanks again! I know a lot of the girls can use your donations to help them get back on their feet, especially with this semester just starting.
