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. We participate annually in Alpha Xi Delta's Letters of Love. We reached out to the community, our campus, as well as our friends and family to raise funds and increase understanding and acceptance for those on the spectrum . Each spring, we host our annual Xiti with Xis. Members of the Morgantown 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.
