Fraternity and sorority members at William Woods University joined together to support Alpha Chi Omega by volunteering at various locations around Callaway County on Chapter Appreciation Day Feb. 19. Then members of Alpha Chi Omega did their own community service for Hera Day March 1.
Among the sites chosen by the students were Fulton Manor Care Center, Callaway Hills Animal Shelter and Faith Maternity Center.
“Community service is something we value as Alpha Chis,” Heather Oetjen, president, said. “When we chose to incorporate Chapter Appreciation Day this year with our philanthropy week, we really wanted to get all the fraternities and sororities involved. It was a great success!”
She added, “Every March 1, Alpha Chi Omega celebrates what we call Hera Day. This is a day of service for us as a chapter. Members go into the community and give their time and skills to those in need.”
