ADPi Celebrates Partnership With RMHC with Inaugural Week of Service
[Atlanta, GA] – In celebration of 40 years with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), Alpha Delta Pi hosted its inaugural Week of Service October 26 through November 2, 2019. The organization asked alumnae to choose one day throughout the week to give back, whether that was to their local Ronald McDonald House or another cause in their community. Friends and families were also encouraged to participate.
Our Alumnae Associations and several individual members registered 81 events, including 15 virtual events for our international sisters. Alumnae and collegians participated by cooking/cleaning for their local Ronald McDonald House, walking/running for various causes, collecting toys and creating goody bags for children, and so much more!
“Service is a core part of ADPi sisterhood. No matter where you live, or what age you are, you can give back, participate, and share in an act of service with sisters. We are so very proud to see how our alumnae responded to this idea in its first year that created new connections for our alumnae sisters and contributed thousands of service hours!”
– Rebecca Gentry, Alumnae Relations Director Chair
