Local Philanthropy & Service

Each AOII chapter and its members may choose to organize and participate in various fund-raising and hands-on service events. Our sisters have fun while sharing their friendship and love through community service. 


Lambda Delta's local philanthropy is The Miracle League of Whitfield County. The Miracle League of Whitfield County provides the opportunity for all children and adults with physical or mental disabilities to play America's favorite pastime, baseball. Our sisters enjoy heading out to the ballfields on Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings to be "buddies" for the ball players. Our chapter is passionate about helping the ball players have the experience of playing on a team sport. 


The fall of 2014, Lambda Delta hosted our first annual Strike Out Arthritis event. The event was held on the campus quad in the late afternoon. Members of both the community and campus purchased tickets to enjoy a barbecue dinner and enjoyed the entertainment of a live band. The event was a success with over $5,000 dollars raised to donate to arthritis research. Every fall, Lambda Delta host events to raise money, like bowling, volleyball, baseball and in the Fall of 2018, we hosted the first Spook- Out Arthritis event, which is a fall family festival event.  


Because the panda is AOII's unofficial mascot, Lambda Delta chose to build pandas as part of our Fall 2014 recruitment efforts. In addition, pandas were donated by chapter members to a local Dalton Fire Department for local children victims of burnouts. After the 2017 AOII International Convention, AOII has officially named the Panda as the mascot.
