U of A Greek houses give boost to Emerge!

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A domestic abuse center in Tucson gets some much needed financial support, thanks to University of Arizona fraternities and sororities.

The U of A inter-fraternity council presented "emerge" with a $10,000 check Monday.

The donation is a compilation of all rush fees collected during this fall's rush period.

The two organizations partnered up this past summer, to provide information about domestic abuse to members of the Greek community.

"I think that they just show great leadership.  It's the kind of leadership we need and want if we're really going to impact domestic abuse,"

The money will help fund all the services Emerge! provides to thousands of women and children in Tucson.
