PHILANTHROPY & SERVICE
Phi Delta Theta's national philanthropy supports the ALS Foundation, which stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. This past fall, we held our first annual "Burnam Bash" philanthropy volleyball tournament where women from 10 of Mizzou's sororities participated in a sand volleyball tournament, with all proceeds from the tournament going towards the ALS Foundation. Stay tuned for Fall '18 as we plan on hosting Burnam Bash for a second year in a row.
Along with planning and executing our own philanthropic events, we also consistently participate in other Greek chapter's philanthropy events. This past year alone we took home first place in Pi Beta Phi's volleyball tournament, Chi Omega's dodgeball tournament, and had strong showings in several other sorority's events.
On the service front, we as a chapter put a strong emphasis on giving back to the community around us. We have found that group service is not only beneficial for helping our members grow as people, but also that helps our members grow closer as brothers by sharing that service experience together.
Because of this, we plan 4-6 large group service events per semester for our brothers to participate in. As a testament to our dedication to serving the community, many of our members choose to do volunteer work on their time various local community charities and support programs. Some off the organizations where you could find Phis volunteering:
Mizzou Veteran's Hospital
Columbia Food Bank
Room at the Inn
Columbia Optimist's Club
Ronald McDonald House
Woodhaven Learning Center
