Iota Phi at American University

Community Service

"Community service is a vital aspect of our organization. Alpha Xi Delta is strongly committed to giving back to our surrounding community since they give so much to us. Through these experiences, our generation is able to grow and better ourselves with those around us."

- Maddie McCarthy, Community Service Director


Alpha Xi Delta is dedicated to community service, not only with our philanthropy Autism Speaks, but in our D.C. community as well. Each semester our Community Service Director plans several external community service opportunities for our sisters to take part in. Just this year we have volunteered at Iona Senior services, a longtime friend of the Iota Phi Chapter, Relay for Life, Capital Arena Food Bank, National Parks Services, and Horace Mann Elementary School. And sisters are always proposing and creating their own service events, like last year when senior Alex Thorne helped plan Sleep Out at AU for her senior capstone. Each of our sisters has something they're passionate about and Alpha Xi gives us a chance to use our passions to make a difference in our community.
