Alpha Phi Omega is a service-oriented college Greek organization and the most representative undergraduate, intercollegiate, co-ed non-profit organization in the United States.
Aside from a host of regular weekly projects serving local nonprofits (SPCA, Habitat for Humanity, Mercy House, and Bridgewater Retirement Community) the Chi Gamma Chapter of APO at James Madison University chooses a specific local nonprofit as beneficiary of their philanthropic efforts.
Under the leadership of its Fall 2021 Philanthropy Chair Samantha Posluszny, APO chose Gemeinschaft Home.
Board member and JMU professor Elisabeth Gumnior helped launch the semester-long collection drive for Gemeinschaft Home with a presentation detailing the mission, work, and needs of the organization.
At the end of the semester, Samantha delivered multiple large boxes of hygiene items for both the men’s and women’s residences and a check for over $800. APO members collected both material and dollar donations through a variety of fun and informative events on campus.
JMU students are often passionate and generous supporters of Gemeinschaft Home. Whether as interns, in the context of Community-Based Learning experiences, or as fundraisers and donors. And Greek life organizations such as APO’s Chi Gamma chapter are leading the way in preparing the next generation of philanthropists.
Thank you, APO for your tremendous generosity!
