Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus:
The Kindly Hearts Initiative
The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.
Letters of Love
All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.
Our Chapter's Impact:
The Psi Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is excited to bring the Kindly Hearts Campaign to the Ohio State campus community. A year-long campaign intended to provide support and funds to communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kindly Hearts Campaign pairs chapters with local organizations of their choice to promote a sense of community and unity. Here at the Ohio State University, our chapter has partnered with School Rocks Party Box. Founded in 2016 by Tia Gannon, School Rocks Party Box works to provide students and schools with classroom parties, books, school supplies, and other necessities. In partnership with Alpha Xi Delta’s Psi Chapter, School Rocks Party Box aims to help less fortunate schools in the Columbus area.
Our sisters look forward to our growing partnership with School Rocks Party Box. Our first initiative consisted of sisters creating Halloween candy goody bags and homemade cards for an elementary school in Columbus to brighten the day of less fortunate students. In addition to smaller initiatives such as this one, we intend to hold the Xi Man competition, an Alpha Xi Delta tradition that allows different fraternity men to compete in hopes of becoming the next Psi chapter sweetheart. All sales from shirts and tickets go towards School Rocks Party Box. The Psi chapter is so excited to be partnered with this amazing organization and we cannot wait to get more involved as the year progresses!
