Answers to questions we are often asked.
Q: What is Alpha Delta Pi's national
A: Alpha Delta Pi's national Philanthropy is Ronald McDonald House Charities. RMHC provides a "home-away-from-home", complete with food and support programs, for families when their children are being treated for a serious illness or injury.
Q: How does Zeta Omicron support
A: We support RMHC in a number of ways. Luckily, there are two Houses in the Atlanta area, both of which we engage for service projects. Over the course of a year, Zeta Omicron will contribute through:
RMHC Visits - Throughout the year, different Sisters will head over to our local Houses to either cook dinner for and eat with all of the guests, facilitate a craft or game night, or put on a weekend brunch.
Run for Ronald - We are excited about the new fundraiser we introduced this past spring called Run for Ronald. It took place on Georgia Tech's own Pi Mile 5K course and was a huge success! We far exceeded our fundraising goal and raised over $11,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities! Check out our website for more information: http://philanthropygtadpi.wix.com/run-for-ronald.
Pop Tabs - You know those tabs on the tops of aluminum cans? We collect gallons and gallons of them for our local Ronald McDonald Houses. Recycling services pay for these tabs in bulk, and the money is used to offset operating costs of the houses in order to keep them free or very minimally priced.
Gala for Giving - Our Zeta Omicron chapter started a new fundraising event this past year as a way to give back to RMH. A silent auction in which families and sisters come together and bid on different donated items. All of the proceeds go to Ronald McDonald House and this past year has been our most successful yet!
Q: Is Philanthropy considered a
central component of our chapter
A: Very much so! Sisters are required to give back to their communities in as many ways as possible, especially RMHC. Our Philanthropy Chair works very hard to organize recurring events, plan new ones, and keep the chapter aware of other philanthropy events taking place in the Greek, GT, and Atlanta communities so we can show our support.
