Indianapolis – (Aug. 28, 2017) The leadership of Phi Kappa Psi is pleased to announce that all undergraduate brothers in the State of Texas have been reported safe from Hurricane Harvey. Chapters reporting include: Texas Alpha, Texas Epsilon, Texas Zeta, and Texas A&M Colony, and Texas Gamma.

“Although this is welcomed news concerning our undergraduate brothers, we still recognize that many more brothers could be affected by the storm’s path. Therefore, we would like to encourage anyone in need of assistance to please reach out,” said Mark Guidi, executive director for Phi Kappa Psi.

Those needing assistance can contact the Phi Kappa Psi Headquarters emergency line at (317) 983-1852. Messages sent via Facebook and Twitter will also be checked. Brothers who are in a capacity to help are encouraged to notify the National Headquarters. Additionally, any brother wishing to make a contribution to the relief efforts should do so through a reputable charity.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been impacted by this devastating storm, and we hope that in the coming days, conditions will improve.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, Phi Kappa Psi was founded in 1852 when William Henry Letterman and Charles Page Thomas Moore were students at Jefferson College in the foothills of Western Pennsylvania. The two were nursing and watching over their stricken friends during an epidemic of typhoid fever at the college. Through the long night vigils, the two established a group that was founded upon the great joy they received from selflessly helping others. Today, Phi Kappa Psi is a national fraternity of more than 80,000 living brothers who promote integrity by further developing their intellect and serving as strong community stewards. With a legacy built on acceptance and trust, each brother realizes his highest potential.
