Human Service

       Human Service


Acacia Fraternity strives to "take a more active part and have a greater influence in the affairs of the community" as our Preamble states. The Missouri chapter accomplishes this by participating in community service and philanthropic events throughout the year, both on campus and in the city of Columbia.

 

       Philanthropy


In addition to community service, Acacia Fraternity is also devoted to philanthropic efforts both on campus and in the Columbia community. On campus, Acacia has been involved in the philanthropies of several other fraternities and sororities. In addition, we organized a successful campus wide toy drive last year for Toys for Tots as part of Y107's annual Toy Parade. Within the Columbia community, Acacia has participated in a wide variety of fundraising events, including Bowl for Kid's Sake, Relay for Life, and the MDA Telethon, benefiting such worthy organizations as Big Brothers Big Sisters, the American Cancer Association, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

 

       On Campus


Our most immediate community is the University of Missouri campus. To better serve our campus community, we volunteer on a regular basis for Supportive Tigers Riding in Pursuit of Ensuring Safety (STRIPES), an organization that provides free rides to students on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. In addition, Acacia has been very active with Alcohol Responsibility Month and has won and finished runner-up in GAMMA (Greeks Advocating Mature Management of Alcohol) the past two years. Acacia members also volunteer on an individual basis for the Wellness Resource Center, University YMCA, and University Hospital and Clinics, and other campus organizations.

 

      Serving Columbia


Acacia Fraternity is also dedicated to serving the city of Columbia. We volunteer on a regular basis for the Central Missouri Food Bank, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Boone County, Fun City Youth Academy, and The Intersection. In addition, Acacia has adopted a stretch of Business Loop 70 that we regularly maintain. Acacia also volunteers for various community events throughout the year, including the Fall Festival of the Arts, MDA Telethon, Tiger Night of Fun, Fear Fest, and Special Olympics.
