Alpha Delta Pi adopted the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) as its national philanthropy in 1979. Ronald McDonald Houses are located worldwide and provide a “home away from home” for families who have sick children in the hospital. In addition to donating money to this worthwhile cause, many Alpha Delta Pi collegiate chapters and alumnae associations spend their time and energy volunteering at these houses.
This year 2017-2018 the Delta Nu chapter of Alpha Delta Pi raised a total of $7,569.57 just for the Ronald McDonald House!
Each fall, the women of ADPi at SEMO host a soccer tournament, Kickin’ It with ADPi. Fraternities and soroities on campus help by raising money and collecting pop tabs to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House. We also host a male pageant called Big Man on Campus, where men from each fraternity compete in different categories such as best costume, question & answer, and talent. Tab collection, along with Big Man, determine seating for the big tournament the next day! The tournament is a lot of fun because we get to hangout with our sisters while watching the fraternity men play soccer!
During the Spring, we hold our 3rd annual Volley for Booby. Volley for Bobby is a volley ball tournament in memory of a loved Sigma Phi Epsilon man who is not with us any more. This event brings all of the men and women in Greek life together to show how much support a society can really do! This year we raised $1,050.00 for the Bobby Scholarship Fund!
During this week we also held the first late night dinner that SEMO has had! We held a successful late night breakfast serving sausage, pancakes, and juice!
In addition to the RMH, ΑDPi supports other fraternities and sororities in their philanthropic efforts for their designated charities. Take a look at our most recent visit to the Ronald McDonald Houses in St. Louis!
