Alpha Delta Pi is proud to support Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) through our international philanthropy effort. A Ronald McDonald House is a "home-away-from-home" for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child. Many families travel far from home and spend weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – this is an awfully long time to be away from or to divide a family. The houses are built on the simple idea that a family should have no other concerns besides that of tending to the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night.
Since our partnership began in 1979, ADPi has contributed more than $12,680,000 to this worthwhile organization. During the 2016-2017 academic year, Alpha Delta Pi contributed more than $1,369,286 to RMHC across the United States and Canada.
Here at Florida State University, we are more than dedicated to giving back to RMHC. We are honored to have our very own local Ronald McDonald House here in Tallahassee. With a house so close to campus, our sisters are able to visit on a regular basis to prepare meals, schedule arts and crafts, help with events, and witness the direct impact of our year-round fundraising efforts. This past October, our annual Homers and Hogs philanthropy event resulted $24,500 to donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
