Our brothers participate in and lead many philanthropic efforts, and we emphasize the importance of giving back to the community as an essential aspect of our chapter life. For example, we adopted a West campus street to clean up:
Sororities and other campus organizations hold many philanthropic events that Lambda Chi Alpha enjoys participating in. One of our favorites, Delta Gamma’s annual Anchor Splash, pits fraternities against each other in a series of fun competitions including synchronized swimming. Another great event is Texas Thon’s annual Dance Marathon, where a group of our brothers stayed on their feet for twelve hours straight to raise money for the Dell Children’s Medical Center. We also participate in Alpha Chi Omega's Burnt Orange Bowl, an annual flag football tournament benefitting Safe Place, an organization opposing domestic violence.
Lambda Chi Alpha’s proudest service event is our Feeding America Campaign, where thousands of brothers across the country raise food and monetary donations for the less fortunate. Our chapter raised over 30,000 lbs. of food for our local philanthropy, the Capital Area Food Bank, this spring. We strive to make the event fun and rewarding for all of our brothers, with events such as Trick-Or-Canning on Halloween and panhandling, as well as our new Virtual Food Drive where anyone can make a charitable donation to help out.
Some other events we’ve participated in recently include blood drives, tree-planting at a Children’s Hospital, clean-up at Lady Bird Lake, and a Habitat for Humanity build.
We understand the great privilege it is to attend the greatest university in the country, and recognize our duty to give back to the community that serves us so well.
