At Alpha Chi Omega’s 1992 National Convention, delegates voted to adopt the Support of Victims of Domestic Violence as a national altruistic project. All members, collegiate and alumnae are encouraged to provide service in their community to local shelters or organizations aiding victims of domestic violence. This expression of concern for others, especially women and children, offers a concentrated way for Alpha Chi’s nationwide to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
In addition to raising awareness through the events sponsored by our chapter, our members also partake in many community service events, and hold fundraisers to raise awareness for other causes as well. Our sisters can always be seen on campus, supporting other Greek and non-Greek organizations’ fundraising and philanthropic efforts.
Alpha Chi Omega here at UTA holds two major fundraising events each year! All funds are donated to SafeHaven of Tarrant County, The Alpha Chi Omega Foundation, and Alpha Chi Omega Housing Corporation.
In the fight to raise awareness on the epidemic of Domestic Violence, Alpha Chi Omega is on the front line. In an effort to raise awareness and funds for this issue, the Epsilon Lambda chapter hosted their 24th Annual Casino Night on November 11th, 2016. The event was held at the Arlington Convention Center. At Casino Night, guests were able to enjoy Texas Hold ‘Em, Roulette, Craps, and Blackjack, as well as potentially winning numerous donated prizes throughout the night. With the community joining together to support Alpha Chi with our goal of spreading awareness of Domestic Violence, we were able to raise almost $40,000!
In the Spring semester of 2016, Epsilon Lambda hosted the annual 5k race at The Green in College Park called “Paint the Campus Purple”. This race was created to raise awareness for Domestic Violence. That semester, we raised over $14,000 and had over 300 participants.
