Alpha Phi Omega Continues to Volunteer

At the University of Redlands, Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed fraternity to the Greek Community doesn’t waste anytime and jumps right into volunteering as the Fall Semester continues. This upcoming week, the fraternity is working with Loma Linda Children’s Hospital. This Sigma Beta Chapter of APO will be making blankets, and inspirational cards for the children at the hospital. Active members don’t help because they have to, it is because they want to. One member, Amalia Calvillo, states “it’s fun” to volunteer and “meeting new people & gaining new skills” makes it all worth while. While APO isn’t volunteering at the hospital and working with the kids, they are participating in beach clean ups, Aids Walk, or helping out at the local Boys and Girls Club. They also are involved in giving helping hands with the San Bernardino National Forest, Habitat for Humanity, Grenada Street Kids, and Trinity Youth Services. Alpha Phi Omega is known for collegiate service’s and is one of the largest organizations in doing so nationally. It is their mission to show their members and every Community the benefits of service, leadership development, bonds of friendship, and furthering freedom. Greek Life Threads is proud of Alpha Phi Omega for being such great examples and good role models to their Communities.
