CSUSB fraternity raises money for hospital workers

Members of the Delta Sigma Phi Eta Beta chapter at Cal State San Bernardino raised more than $1,000 through a virtual fundraiser to buy meals for hospital workers at Dignity Health Community Hospital in San Bernardino.

The fraternity bought meals from Alanbertos Mexican Food in San Bernardino and then donated them to the hospital, according to a statement on the university’s website.

“We as a fraternity wanted to do something special for the hard-working frontline workers who are currently fighting COVID-19 every day,” chapter president Adrian Valdivia said in the statement. “We are thankful to everyone who donated for this amazing cause, and we want to acknowledge all the heroes who are currently fighting this disease,”

Chapter members bought 160 burritos as well as chips and water. The food was donated last weekend.

The Eta Beta chapter has been at Cal State San Bernardino since 1985 and was one of the first fraternities on campus. Delta Sigma Phi is a national, not-for-profit fraternity with nearly 125,000 members, according to the statement.
