Philanthropy

Ronald McDonald House

 

In 1979, Alpha Delta Pi chose the Ronald McDonald House Charities to be their national philanthropy. Since it first associated with this organization, Alpha Delta Pi has contributed over $2 million to Ronald McDonald Houses nationally. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) supports Ronald McDonald Houses in local communities and funds grants to other non-profit organizations who focus on children in need. There are 271 Ronald McDonald Houses in 30 countries, whose functions are to provide comfort, care, and "a home-away-from home" for the families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. More than 10 million families have utilized the Ronald McDonald houses, saving over $120 million in housing and meal expenses. Families find the comforts of home at Ronald McDonald Houses and Family Rooms, where shelter is available to all families of critically ill or injured children. At the Ronald McDonald Houses and Family Rooms, families share experiences, understanding and empathy with others whose worlds have been turned upside down.

Theta Xi & ADPi Fish Fry

​This year, Alpha Delta Pi was honored to join Theta Xi's annual Fish Fry philanthropy event.  We helped the men of Theta Xi cook and serve delicious fried fish and fries while socializing with our guests. The money that was raised went to Manhattan's Habitat for Humanity and The Ronald McDonald House.
