Sorority seeks baby supplies for drive

Alpha Chi Omega is currently holding its annual “Alpha Chi Omega “Hugs and Pampers” children of domestic violence diaper drive. The drive will continue running until Friday.

Every spring the sorority collects diapers, baby wipes, baby food and donations for children and families of domestic violence.

Donations can be dropped off at the Lowman Student Center Room 328 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and also at the Alpha Chi Omega House at any time.

All proceeds from the drive will be delivered to the Huntsville SAAFE House on March 1, Hera Day, which is the day Alpha Chi Omega chapters nationwide dedicate to giving personal service for the happiness and well being of others.

The Hugs and Pampers drive is part of a national altruistic project for Alpha Chi Omega chapters across the country.

According to sorority president Elizabeth Jones, Alpha Chi Omega works all year long on projects that will benefit children of domestic violence.

In addition to this drive, the sorority has other charitable projects lined up this semester. Included in those events is the annual Mr. Alpha Chi Banquet. All proceeds from that event will also go to benefit children of domestic violence.

Alpha Chi Omega also holds its annual Children of Domestic Violence 5K Run every fall semester, which also benefits the SAAFEHouse.

Fostering education about domestic violence across campus and bringing in community speakers are also parts of the sorority’s efforts to help fight domestic violence across the country.

For more information on any of Alpha Chi Omega’s upcoming charitable events contact president Elizabeth Jones at 496-7000 or vice president Christi Byerley at 496-7489.
