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.
Manhattan Crisis Center:
The Gamma Zeta Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega at Kansas State University works with The Crisis Center, Inc. a local haven for domestically abused and sexually assaulted women and their families. Several members of Alpha Chi Omega volunteer at the center and the entire chapter participates year-round in events and fundraisers that support the center and raise awareness for domestic violence and abuse.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month:
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.
Dodge Domestic Violence Dodge Ball Tournament:
Our third annual dodge ball tournament was held in February to close Healthy Relationships Week. Teams signed up from the K-State Community to compete for the Grand Champion title.
Pizza Slice and Pumpkin Spice with Alpha Chi and Kappa Delta:
Our first annual Pizza Slice and Pumpkin Spice was held in the fall of 2015. At our event we served pizza, beverages with pumpkin flavors to add, pumpkin flavored deserts, and held a raffle. We partnered with Kappa Delta to raise money for the Manhattan Crisis Center.
National Luminary Project:
One night during the month of October we participate in the National Luminary Project by displaying candles and facts about domestic violence to raise awareness in the Kansas State University and Manhattan communities.
