Alpha Delta Pi's international philanthropy is the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Since our partnership began in 1979, Alpha Delta Pi has raised more than $10 million to this amazing cause. The Ronald McDonald House provides housing for families with ill children receiving treatment away from home. We are honored to have our very own local Tallahassee Ronald McDonald House where the Iota chapter of Alpha Delta Pi donates both time and money. Over the 2014-2015 school year, we raised $55,734 for various charities and participated in more than 5,000 hours of community service!
We host our annual philanthropy, ADPi-athlon, every spring. ADPi-athlon brings together over 30 campus organizations to raise money for RMH. Participants join in games all involving pie. Some games include pie-eating contests, obstacle courses, and pie tosses. Every year this event is a huge success and is a fun time for everyone!
The ladies of Alpha Delta also host a fall philanthropy. This past year we organized a homerun derby called Homers and Hogs to raise money for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) research as well as the Ronald McDonald House, our national charity. Participants such as Greek organizations, campus groups, and Tallahassee community members competed in the derby. Homers and Hogs resulted in more than $15,000 to donate to our charities.
On campus, ADPi's can be found participating in all sorts of community service activities with a variety of organizations. Dance Marathon is the largest student-run philanthropy in the southeast, and the entire campus and community gets involved. Every year many of our members pledge to stand for 20 hours, and raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. ADPi also looks forward to participating in Light the Night, Relay for Life, Cheers for Charity, Line Dance, and many other Panhellenic, IFC, MGC, and NPHC events. Our sisters also spend many weekends participating and volunteering in events around Tallahassee.
