Advancing philanthropic interests is a part of Theta Phi Alpha’s mission and the Traditions of Theta Phi Alpha which state, “A Theta Phi Alpha engages in philanthropic efforts to help those less fortunate than herself.” We promote our philanthropic efforts starting with recruitment and throughout all phases of membership.
Theta Phi Alpha focuses its philanthropic efforts on:
*Camp Friendship is a two-week summer camp hosted in northeast Mississippi for children from disadvantaged and low-income homes. Children develop teamwork skills, foster new relationships, and promote a sense of self-worth that grows from their personal accomplishments. Sisters of Theta Phi Alpha assist Camp Friendship with financial donations, supplies and as volunteers at the camp.
*The House That Theta Phi Alpha Built, established in 1993, has the goal of improving the plight of the homeless and allows the flexibility of selection suitable organizations to support, such as those providing aid to the homeless through shelters, home building, or neighborhood revitalization projects. This permits Theta Phi Alphas to help those in need in their own community, while remaining united in our aim and purpose.
*Glenmary Home Missioners serves the spiritual and material needs of those living in rural Appalachia, where they distribute food, clothing, and books to needy persons, and assist in providing medical care, job training and tutoring.
