Our Main Philanthropy
The House of Ruth Maryland leads the fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting the attitudes, behaviors, and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services necessary to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear.
The members of Phi Alpha Mu are very passionate about the cause of and services that House of Ruth Maryland provides. With some sisters who have even benefited from HoR's aid, Phi Alph passionately raises money throughout the year to donate. We also love to send donations and letters during the holidays!
Check out the House of Ruth's Website or our YouTube video where sisters talk about what House of Ruth means to them.
Race for Her 5k
The 4th Annual Race for Her 5K just passed! The sisters of Phi Alpha Mu and other racers ran to raise funds for the House of Ruth and the Phi Alpha Mu Endowed Scholarship and raised over $1,600! Thank you to everyone who came out to support our philanthropy, which helps women and children affected by intimate partner violence get emergency shelter, legal help, counseling, and more! We are so proud of the money we raised for our scholarship, which was created to help McDaniel women afford a higher education. All the proceeds of the race will go towards two phenomenal causes!
Relay for Life
Every Spring Phi Alpha Mu participates in Relay for Life. The event, run by the American Cancer Society, raises money for cancer research over the course of a few months and takes place every April. This year it's on April 24, 2020. Every Greek organization participates and competes to raise the most money. Last year we came in third place, raising over $2,000!
