Our hearts are with you as we face the new coronavirus (the COVID-19 virus) pandemic and its impact on our daily lives. While there is a lot of uncertainty, we want you to know that Alpha Chi Omega will continue to show up for you in all stages of life.
In the weeks and months ahead, we know there will be sisters impacted by unemployment and other abrupt and overwhelming changes in addition to the health risks. In light of these turbulent times, the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation has reimagined Day of Giving as a Day of Caring. Instead of a fundraising campaign, this will be a caring campaign.
Alpha Chi Omega’s Day of Caring will take place on Wednesday, April 1 and will last 1 day, 8 hours and 85 minutes to show #AXOcares.
It is our hope to share something positive – our love for Alpha Chi Omega – and to create opportunities for sisters to connect virtually. We hope you will choose one of the ways outlined below to be there for your Alpha Chi Omega sisters.
And while our focus is not on fundraising, please know that the financial needs of our Fraternity and our sisters remain. So if you are called to give and are able, we appreciate your support.
While there is still a lot we don’t know, we do know Alpha Chi Omega will always be a place that empowers women. We’ll “see” you on April 1!
