The Iota chapter of Alpha Xi Delta proudly supports Autism Speaks as their philanthropy. Throughout the year, the sisters participate in many philanthropic activities and hold fundraisers that benefit the organization. There are small events that Iota holds, such as the Kiss a Xi booth, where students can pay a dollar for a bag of Hershey kisses with autism facts tied to the bag. Iota also has a large philanthropy event every semester that benefits Autism Speaks. Last fall, we participated in the Letters of Love Event. We reached out to the community, our campus, as well as our friends and family in order to fundraise. We proudly were ranked in the top five Alpha Xi Delta Chapters when the fundraising concluded. Last spring, Iota held an event called Xiti with Xi. Members of the community and West Virginia University students joined us for a xiti dinner to fundraise for Autism Speaks. We also held a Step it Up 5k for Autism Speaks as well where we raised money for the wonderful organization.
