Iota Beta donates to MCH

The Iota Beta Chapter of Phi Beta Psi Sorority recently made a donation of $1,500 to the Madison County Hospital Foundation Breast Cancer Initiative. The $2 million initiative will fund educational programs, new technology and an endowment fund to help uninsured patients. The money raised in this campaign will stay in Madison County.

Members of the Phi Beta Psi Sorority conduct fundraising projects throughout the year to support their national cancer research project and local charities. Members work at the admission gate at the Madison County Fair, work at the Farm Science Review, and sell subs and candy carrots to raise money. This past year, they contributed over $15,000 to charity.

For more information about the Hospital Foundation’s Breast Cancer Initiative, contact Mona Flax at 740-845-7050.
