Domestic Violence Awareness -- "These Hands Don't Hurt"

At Alpha Chi Omega 's 1992 National Convention, delegates voted to adopt the Support of Victims of Domestic Violence as a national altruistic project.

The Alpha Chi Omega Foundation supports educational programs for victims of domestic violence as well as hands-on support at the local community level where personal involvement can make a difference. Grants go to various agencies across the nation providing services to victims as well as to provide development and implementation of educational programs for members.

In observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Founders Day, Alpha Chi Omega's are encouraged to participate in events in their communities during the month of October.

Also, in support of Domestic Violence Awareness, our chapter does fun events for philanthropy such as Relay for Life every May. Last May, we raised awareness through spraying each other with paint with Nerf guns! The event was a hit and also raised money for another philanthropy, the American Cancer Society. Also, last year we hosted our very first "Pie an Alpha Chi" event where we raised money by being pied in the face by friends and other members of the community.
