THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES
In 1979, Alpha Delta Pi adopted The Ronald McDonald House as its national philanthropy. The Ronald McDonald House Charities serve to provide a temporary home away from home for families with children who are undergoing serious medical treatments. It keeps families together and allows them to avoid constant, long-distance travel during a period where time is so precious.
The Charlottesville Ronald McDonald House is only five minutes away from our house. This is not the case for many of ADPi chapters and we feel very lucky to have an RMH so close by. It allows our sisters to see first-hand the positive impact they have and to directly interact with the staff and families they are helping.
Each week we send groups of sisters to help out at the house to cook meals, clean, and spend time with the children living at RMH. We also have a philanthropy event each semester to raise money. Check out the Diamond Series tab to learn more about our spring event and keep an eye on our social media in August for our fall event!
