Alpha Epsilon ETA Awarded Prestigious Service Grant

Athens, W.Va. - Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity is pleased to announce Alpha Epsilon Eta Chapter of Concord University as one of the 30 chapters being awarded the Alpha Phi Omega Youth Service Grant.

The Youth Service Grant Program provides funds for Alpha Phi Omega chapters that are seeking assistant for Spring Youth Service Day projects, socially positive service projects for pre-college age youth. The chapters submit applications and project ideas for review and are then selected based on the impact their projects will have on the youth in their community. This year Alpha Epsilon Eta, as well as 29 other chapters nationwide, was selected to receive this grant.

With the funding from the Youth Service Grant, Alpha Epsilon Eta will host the Fantastic Field Frenzy on April 26, 1:30 p.m., at the Carter Center. The Fantastic Field Frenzy is a youth-oriented field day where area children will be able to enjoy an afternoon of crafts, fun activities and other entertainment. Alpha Epsilon Eta hopes to not only entertain and create memories with the children, but also to establish themselves as role models the children can look up to.

Alpha Epsilon Eta Chapter of Concord University was chartered into Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity on December 4, 1999. Since that date, the chapter has maintained a positive presence throughout the CU campus and surrounding community with its service projects. The chapter has 14 active members.

Alpha Phi Omega is a National Coed Service Fraternity—college students gathered together in an organization based on fraternalism and founded on the principles of the Boy Scouts of America. Its purpose is to develop leadership, promote friendship and provide service to humanity. Since 1925, more than 357,000 students have chosen Alpha Phi Omega, making the Fraternity the nation’s largest Greek letter fraternity.
