Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus:
The Kindly Hearts Initiative
The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.
Letters of Love
All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.
Our Chapter's Impact:
The Kappa Beta chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Texas Tech University is dedicated to supporting the Kindly Hearts Campaign. During the school year, Kappa Beta puts on two philanthropy events, hosts various restaurant giveback nights, and participates in community events.
The Kindly Hearts Campaign is a year-long campaign that helps support our communities through those most directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. To support the Kindly Hearts Campaign, Kappa Beta will focus on supporting students, food insecurities, and basic needs shortages.
Throughout the academic year, our chapter organizes an array of exciting events, including the highly anticipated Backyard Bayou and the AmaXIng Challenge. In Spring 2021, we successfully launched our inaugural Backyard Bayou Crawfish Boil at our lodge, creating an unforgettable experience filled with live music, engaging games, and the joy of camaraderie. This event left a lasting impression, establishing a tradition we are committed to upholding every year. The proceeds generated from the Backyard Bayou were dedicated to supporting and uplifting our community, making a tangible impact in the lives of those around us.
In the fall season, we enthusiastically come together for our AmaXIng Challenge event, where we host an exhilarating Sports Frenxi. This dynamic gathering revolves around a thrilling basketball tournament, complemented by delectable offerings from food trucks, engaging games, and uplifting music. The AmaXIng Challenge serves as a platform to foster friendly competition, promote a sense of community, and create lasting memories for all who participate.
These events serve as remarkable opportunities for us to give back, strengthen our bonds, and create meaningful connections within our community, while simultaneously enjoying the spirit of celebration and togetherness.
