Transcript Alpha Phi Omega members spent their weekends making beds, serving food, and building homes to help others in need. APO, the oldest fraternity on campus, is a co-ed service organization whose members volunteer a countless number of hours helping organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the Texas Beach Cleanup and AIDS Awareness. "We're not your typical Greeks. Alpha Phi Omega does a lot of good for the community," said President Shena Cherian, a junior business major. Each year, Alpha Phi Omega chooses one charity as their main focus. For the 1997-98 year, Hunger and Homeless Awareness was their primary project. The 33 members sponsored clothing and food drives on campus, which gave students and faculty the opportunity to donate their gently used clothing to the Open Door Mission. APO also had a 24-hour night watch during the first week of November in order to raise money for charity, as well. "Every member of the fraternity will hopefully stay awake for 24 hours, if we can. For each hour we're up, our sponsors will donate money to us, all of which goes to the Open Door Mission," Cherian said. Being a member of APO meant more than just donating money or gathering clothes for the unfortunate. Members felt it was about giving yourself to those who need you the most. "I think the most important thing about the Hunger and Homeless Awareness project is trying to get a true understanding of how the people live. We give our time in order to understand, and that's what makes us aware," said APO member Kunal Mishra, a sophomore accounting major. Alpha Phi Omega also helped the athletes of the Special Olympics. Members attended tournaments, helped with registration, assisted the athletes in practicing their events and celebrated their victories by cheering the athletes on. "It's a great feeling when you can say that you helped to build a family a home or helped a child to read. Seeing a child's smile is the only thanks I need and makes it all worth it,' Cherian said. "We give our time in order to understand ..." Kunal Mishra Alpha Phi Omega members help with the construction of affordable housing as part of the Americore Project. The members participated in several service projects throughout the year. Photo courtesy of Alpha Phi Omega October Fighting Hunger
