Supporting the UVA Children's Hospital Heart Family Fund
April 20, 2013
About Phi Sigma Pi
We are the Alpha Omicron chapter of Phi Sigma Pi, founded March 3, 1991. This is a co-ed organization that blends the attributes of an honor society, social fraternity and service organization. We bring together students with high academic achievements to work collectively to uphold three ideals: scholarship, leadership, and fellowship. We are a brotherhood of about 80 diverse men and women from all walks of life studying a variety of topics at the University. Over the past few years we have worked with the Charlottesville SPCA, Charlottesville Emergency Food Bank, Madison House, and Jeffrey's Gifts. This past August we were given three national awards - Best in Region, Outstanding Regional Conference, and Outstanding Service Event - that have only motivated us to impact our community in even greater ways.
Pediatric Cardiac Care UVA Children's Hospital
Families at the University of Virginia Children's Heart Hospital Center take comfort in knowing their children are receiving care from some of the best pediatric cardiologists at UVA, who are experienced in treating congenital and acquired heart disease. Having a child with a serious illness can be stressful for families, both mentally and financially. The Children's Heart Family Fund was established to ease some of this stress by providing food vouchers, gas cards, and lodging for families traveling across Virginia to hospital and clinic appointments. For more information about the UVA Children's Hospital Heart Family Fund, please visit their website at www.uvachildrens.org.
