One of the Seven Core Values of Lambda Chi Alpha's leadership model is Service and Stewardship. Our goal is to exemplify this value through our actions in an effort to better our community while having some fun at the same time.

Tesla Canned Food Drive

In November of 2013, the chapter held a successful philanthropy event on the American University campus. Teaming up with the local Tesla Motors sellers, the chapter held a food drive, collecting over 300 cans of food for local food shelters. This was the chapter’s first attempted philanthropy yet it far exceeded expectations.

North American Food Drive

American University participates in Lambda Chi Alpha's national philanthropy North American Food Drive. In 2011, Lambda Chi Alpha raised over 1.5 million pounds of food for local food shelters across North American. Since 1993, Lambda Chi Alpha has conducted an international philanthropic project that has raised more than 35 million pounds of food for the needy across North America.
