Philanthropy: Make-A-Wish Foundation
Colors: Cardinal and Straw
Words from the President: Chi Omega is my home away from home. Everyday I am inspired by the ambitious, scholarly, radiant, and genuine women that make up our chapter. I feel incredibly blessed and will be forever grateful for the friendships Chi Omega has given me. I am beyond proud to be a member of such an amazing organization, and to not only lead, but to learn from all of my sisters.
Words from the Philanthropy Chair: Chi Omega’s two philanthropies, the Make-A-Wish foundation and Exceptional Care for Children, allow our chapter to fulfill one of our founding principles for our sisterhood, “service to others.” The Make-A-Wish foundation grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions, and is the largest wish-granting organization in the world. We are grateful to take part in the positive impact that Make-A-Wish leaves on so many families! In addition to The Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Rho Lambda chapter adopted a local philanthropy in 2018: Exceptional Care for Children. This facility aids technology dependent children who are unable to live at home with their families. Partnering with Exceptional Care for Children has allowed our chapter to commit our time to both volunteering and fundraising, and has given us the chance to help children and families in our local community. Through events like ChiHOP, our pancake fundraiser, Home Run for Hope, an annual wiffle ball tournament, Parents Brunch, and so much more, we are able to help make a difference in countless lives. This past December, our chapter hosted our very own wish-granting party for a four-year old’s trip to Disney World. Sending this young boy to Disney world not only changed his life for the better but changed our hearts forever. While fundraising to change the lives of others, we create memories that last a lifetime.
