One of the most gratifying aspects of Panhellenic life is the sense of satisfaction and pride which comes with involvement in philanthropy and community service. Fundraising events of many kinds are organized each year by fraternities and sororities in order to benefit worthwhile charities. Such projects help build moral character through the realization of the needs of people less fortunate. Each year, individual chapters participate in philanthropy projects ranging from working with Big Brothers and Big Sisters to fundraising drives for the Heart Fund, American Cancer Society, Muscular Dystrophy, and Riley Hospital for Children. Whether visiting residents of a local nursing home, painting public buildings, or skating with preschoolers, the fraternity/sorority member experiences a feeling of well-being and a sense of worth that comes from the simple expression of care for others.
