PHILANTHROPY & SERVICE
Phi Delta Theta's national philanthropy supports the Live Like Lou Foundation, which raises money and awareness for ALS disease. ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Each semester numerous Phi's attempt to become an "Iron Phi." To gain this title, a Phi must raise $1,000 for the Live Like Lou Foundation and complete an athletic event of choice.
Along with the Iron Phi program and planning and executing our own philanthropic events, we also consistently participate in other Greek chapter's philanthropy events.
As for community service, our chapter puts a strong emphasis on giving back to the community around us. We have found that group service not only allows our members grow as people, but that it also helps our members grow closer as brothers by sharing a service experience together.
Each semester we plan 4-6 large group service events 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 at various local community charities and support programs. Here are some of 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
