Alpha Phi Omega Awarded Youth Service Grant
April 21, 2008
Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity is pleased to announce Xi Upsilon Chapter of Mount Union College as one of the 30 chapters being awarded the Alpha Phi Omega Youth Service Grant.
The Youth Service Grant Program provides funds for Alpha Phi Omega chapters that are seeking assistant for Spring Youth Service Day projects, socially positive service projects for pre-college age youth. The chapters submit applications and project ideas for review and are then selected based on the impact their projects will have on the youth in their community. This year Xi Upsilon, as well as 29 other chapters nationwide, were selected to receive this grant.
With the funding from the Youth Service Grant, Xi Upsilon is helping the Pegasis Farm, a theraputic riding center is Northeast Ohio, by donating supplies from the farm’s wish list to help maintain the grounds and take care of the patients and horses. Xi Upsilon has volunteered its time to the Pegasis Farm in the past and looks forward to being able to do more than just volunteer.
Xi Upsilon Chapter of Mount Union College was chartered into Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity on April 24, 1964. Since that date, the chapter has maintained a positive presence throughout the Mount Union campus and surrounding community. The chapter has 59 active members.
Alpha Phi Omega is a National Coed Service Fraternity—college students gathered together in an organization based on fraternalism and founded on the principles of the Boy Scouts of America. Its purpose is to develop leadership, promote friendship and provide service to humanity. Since 1925, more than 357,000 students have chosen Alpha Phi Omega, making the Fraternity the nation’s largest Greek letter fraternity.
