PI MU OMEGA CHAPTER SIGNATURE PROGRAMS

Pi Mu Omega Chapter maintains a highly visible presence through service and involvement within our service areas. The chapter has worked to implement various community service programs consistent with the International Programs and goals of the sorority.

 

 AKA Alarms – Annual donation of fire alarms to the Willingboro Fire Department to help raise awareness for the fire prevention (October).

 Sister Will You Help Me? – Our chapter sponsors refreshments and participates in the Willingboro support group for survivors and current fighters against cancer (of all types).

 Sunday Supper – This is an annual day of service that is dedicated to spending time with our local senior citizens through fellowship and dinner provided by the chapter.

 Neighborhood Noel – Every Christmas season, Pi Mu Omega hosts a night of dinner and caroling for the local residents of Burlington City to help spread a little joy and cheer.

 #BlackLivesMatter forum – Pi Mu Omega collaborates with the local chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and the Willingboro Police Department to expose the realities of recent interaction between police officers and young African American men in many communities across the country.

 ASCEND℠ Mentoring Program – We take an active role in developing scholars and community leaders in high school-aged ladies through this signature program.

 Meet the Authors – Our chapter celebrates great authors by hosting an event where they share passages from their books with community members at the Willingboro Public Library.
