Packages for Soldiers (Alpha Pi)

Alpha Pi Chapter assembled care packages for U.S. soldiers stationed overseas in Poland during the holiday season. Through this project, members expressed their collective gratitude for the sacrifices that soldiers continue to make for our country.

Significant budgeting and fundraising efforts are required for service projects that include supplies, shipping and other costs. Alpha Pi Chapter hosted a successful cookout fundraiser on campus to raise funds to help cover a portion of their service project. In addition to member-donated items and chapter funds, Alpha Pi Chapter applied for and received grant funding from the Omega Phi Alpha Foundation for additional care package supplies and covered the costs of shipping.

In late November 2023, members got together to assemble 70 care packages that included some of the soldiers’ favorite snacks like ramen, sunflower seeds, beef jerky, peanuts, granola bars, drink powder packets and candies. The care packages were shipped to an address in Poland that was provided by Red Cross Fort Knox.
