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.
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.
