    Northwest fraternities raise funding for local children, family center

    Northwest Missouri State University fraternity men recently awarded $780 to the Children and Family Center of Northwest Missouri in support of its services.

    The students raised the money in March during the Northwest Interfraternity Council’s annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event to show support for women and raise awareness about domestic violence. Participating men don women’s high heels and walk a one-mile route on the campus.

    The Children and Family Center provides shelter and a nurturing environment for individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault. The center helps survivors learn and grow through advocacy and dedicated services.

    The center also provides community education in the northwest Missouri counties of Nodaway, Atchison, Holt, Gentry and Worth. For more information about the Children and Family Center, visit www.childrenandfamilycenter.org.  

    The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the administrative board of fraternity men who represent the best interest of Northwest fraternities. IFC seeks to promote a united Greek community dedicated to the guiding values of all fraternities. IFC coordinates educational, social and recruitment programs for chapters and establishes the framework and standards that all fraternities uphold.
