• Community Service is more than just a concept at Alpha Kappa Lambda; it is a commitment made, and fulfilled, by true Men of Character - by the men of Alpha Kappa Lambda, Gamma chapter.

  • This year Gamma Chapter broke new ground for philanthropy.  Two successful charitable events were conducted during the spring semester.  In early February, AKL held a pasta dinner at the house, cooked by Chef Ann and served by the active members of the chapter.  Through large active body involvement at $5 per dinner $725 was donated to the Champaign Center for Women in Transition, helping women and children who are victims of, or at risk for, domestic violence.  This philanthropy is part of "These Hands Don't Hurt", the national Alpha Kappa Lambda campaign which binds all chapters together and facilitates each chapter to give back to their communities. 



    During the week before finals, AKL held another philanthropy dinner at the house along with Alpha Epsilon Delta.  The BBQ for Cystic Fibrosis was held on the front lawn of the chapter house, and CF is a philanthropic priority for both fraternities.  Members too turns as "Grill Masters", served all the food, and also enjoyed a fun day on the lawn with other members and friends.  A big thanks to Hendrick House, our campus food supplier, for donating the meat, buns, and chips to this event, as well as Chef Ann for her planning leadership.  Through these efforts, nearly $700 was raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to be used towards future research.
