“Fraternities sometimes make the news for the wrong reasons. Today we see a great group of Fraternity members do something really good for an amazing non-profit in our Tucson community,” said Victor Bellino who not only acts as a mentor to TKE, but also regularly volunteers at MTaB.

It’s a a philanthropic event for the UArizona fraternity this wasn’t their first time helping the non-profit.

“This is a huge undertaking and we could not have done this without their help as we are a small nonprofit organization, and we have a wonderful, but small, volunteer staff,” said Grace Stocksdale, MTaB’s founder and director.

In March, the TKE helped with the move of seasonal supplies. Both groups felt lucky to be able to be a part of the necessary overhaul.

“They showed up and worked very hard all morning to get the job done,” said Tori Bellino, a warehouse manager for MTaB.
