Service

Pursuing the mission of providing service to others.




Through participating in weekly service, fellowship, and membership events, all members of Alpha Phi Omega strengthen their commitment to the three cardinal principles. While our organization completes an average of 6,500 service hours per semester, the true measure of success is not just a number. Members develop strong connections with the people and communities they serve. Below are a few of the many organizations we partner with on a weekly basis.

Hollywood Food Coalition



Every night between 6:15 and 7:30, HFC (a broad-based grass-roots organization of 25 years, gathers to serve a hot, fresh, and nutritious meal to the homeless and hungry. While doing so, we get to know them as individuals and help them think better of themselves and not be shy about asking for help.

"We have been serving those in need since 1987. The Hollywood Food Coalition provides a warm, nutritious meal along with access to basic daily needs, such as clothing, backpacks, sleeping bags, and hygiene items, as well as assistance with housing placement and referrals."
