Suzette Needs "The Helping Hand"


Our former cook, Suzette Riggins, was recently diagnosed and hospitalized with Covid. She is currently in ICU in Gainesville.

I was reunited with Suzette last summer when I became the Public Information Officer for the Gainesville Police Department.

For the past 15+ years, Suzette has worked at the Reichert House Youth Academy in Gainesville, an after school program run by GPD for at risk youth. Suzette is beloved by the boys and respected by everyone at GPD. At the age of 66, she is still working hard, serving hundreds of young men and their families every year.

I’m asking for your help in providing Suzette some much needed financial support during this difficult time.  At this point, we are uncertain when she will be able to return to work.

If you can, please extend the helping hand to a woman who took care of us while at Theta Chi. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
