As Alpha Chi’s, nationwide we take pride in raising awareness for domestic violence and sexual assault. Epsilon Lambda is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to volunteer at SafeHaven of Tarrant County, our local shelter for women and children who have been affected by domestic violence. Every year, we host two philanthropic events, a 5K in the spring and a Casino Night in the fall. This past fall, we raised nearly $25,000 at our 25th annual Casino Night. 75% of the profits go to SafeHaven Foundation and 25% goes to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation which provides grants for educational programming and events. Throughout the year, we have a presence on the UTA campus by hosting tabling events and fundraisers. We promote healthy relationships in February, sexual assault prevention in April, and domestic violence awareness in October. This spring, we were lucky enough to host a workshop called ‘Let’s Talk Love’ in which a facilitator from headquarters came and educated our members on dating violence, sexual assault, and healthy relationships. Our chapter strongly believes in serving those who have been impacted by domestic violence, educating our members and providing them tools to build their own healthy relationships. Service is one of the core tenets of Alpha Chi Omega’s mission, and as a national organization of real, strong women, we have an opportunity to support other women to become the same.
I am so excited to be serving as the Vice President of Philanthropy
