The brotherhood is quite active in the local community and in giving back to it. Many members of the house choose to spend their free time helping out residents of the Upper Valley through programs like DREAM and the Outdoor Leadership Experience. Others choose to contribute on either the national or global scale through involvement with the Tucker Center or through clubs like Dartmouth Coalition for Global Health.
The house as a whole dedicates time and funding each term to support community service endeavors. Members have found that, despite their busy schedules, this is often some of the most important time they spend every term.
During the ’17-’18 school year, Alpha Chi participated in/organized a number of service events, including a Halloween party for local kids from public housing in the area, meal prep for elderly in the Upper Valley, and a first-ever AXA Service Weekend, which included our yearly “Sausagefest” benefiting prostate cancer research. ”
In the fall of 2016, the house won a campus-wide contest for CHaD participation, coming in with a substantially larger number of registered members than any other Greek house.
Over the 2016 summer term, every brother on campus was involved with the Prouty, and together raised over $2000. The brotherhood also held a campus-wide volleyball tournament to benefit Action Against Hunger, and cooked meals for members of the local community with Students Fighting Hunger.
In spring of 2016, the house participated in the Relay for Life, raising money to fight against cancer, and prepared dinners through Students Fighting Hunger.
In addition, the brotherhood participates in termly builds with Habitat for Humanity.
If there is a community service event that you would like the house to be involved in, please reach out to our service chair. Currently, the position is held by Dave Tramonte ’18. He can be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
