The Lambda Phi Chapter (Appalachian State Univ.) takes on the MLK Challenge to help in its community

On January 21, 2017, many members of the Lambda Phi Chapter at Appalachian State University participated in a campus-wide service project, "The MLK Challenge." Throughout the day, members of the chapter split into different groups with other students from the university, and went into the city of Boone, North Carolina to help different companies and businesses.

"The service day left a positive impact on many of our sisters," Hannah Howell, LAMP Editor and Historian, said.

Holly Parsons, another member of Lambda Phi, said of the day: "It was a rewarding experience to help at different spots throughout Watauga County!"

"It was such a great experience to witness all of the hard work our chapter did for the community!" Hannah concluded.

Lambda Phi Chapter of Appalachian State University works tirelessly for speech and hearing, raising $11,069 in 2015

The Lambda Phi Chapter of Appalachian State University has worked tirelessly to help not only its members but the surrounding community. The chpater's shared commitment to speech and hearing connected Lambda Pi to its local philanthropy, Appalachian Communication Disorders Clinic, or ACDC.

ACDC provides prevention, assessment, and treatment services in the areas of speech, language, swallowing, and hearing disorders. . Many of the families they help are in financial need and would not be able to afford these services otherwise.

In the past, Lambda Phi Chapter has raised money to donate a playground to the Clinic to create a better experience for the children. This year, Lambda Phi's focus has been on philanthropy events to continue their service to ACDC, along with The Painted Turtle camp, Starkey Hearing Foundation and Gallaudet University.

The chapter's annual Turtle Trot has been a great success for the past nine years. Patterson Weaver, Philanthropy Chairman for 2105, dedicated over 45 hours of her time planning and executing the Turtle Trot.

Secondly, the chapter hosts an annual Hamburgers for Hearing event, to raise funds for these philanthropies. The event is open to all students and residents of the community. This event has always been successful on the Appalachian State campus.

At the beginning and end of each semester, many Lambda Phi members volunteer at the Appalachian State bookstore, contributing to the university's book rental system by shelving, stocking, and distributing books.

Collectively, these three main events and others raised $11,069 in 2015, 60 percent of which was donated to the chapter's local philanthropy. "Lambda Phi Chapter is faithfully dedicated to our local philanthropy to truly better our community," said Rachel Peterson, LAMP Editor and Historian.
