Lambda Theta Delta members participate in philanthropy not only to keep in touch with our respective heritages, but to contribute to the local UCI community and the Los Angeles and Orange County areas as well. By pooling together our numbers and resources, our brotherhood is capable of providing service to the needy and unfortunate. We perform various activities and service projects, from volunteer projects which benefit minorities, to participating in local Greek events for positive causes. Our primary philanthropy involves our relationship with the Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter, which supports the homeless in Orange County. Expanding our philanthropic horizons help LTDs develop as well-rounded individuals.
OC Interfaith Shelter
LTDs dedicate much of their time and resources to the OC Interfaith Shelter, located in Costa Mesa, CA. Since 1981, their facilities have offered shelter for women and families and provided a safe enviornment for homeless children. Find out more about the OC Interfaith by visiting their website HERE.

Serving the community
On June 5, 2005, LTDs, along with our sister sorority Phi Zeta Tau, volunteered at the Orange County AIDS Walk.

The LTD/Alpha Phi dance team performed and LTDs ran a total of 101 laps around Aldrich Park to show support for this cause.
Good Works | Donations to Charity
Paul & Jon Ruddick formed a coalition of Louisiana maritime injury attorneys that assist the volunteer groups working with labor groups to ensure the safety of workers and the well being of their families in shoreline communities in Louisiana and Texas. They’ve been very successful at drawing attention to some of the long standing problems in the poorer communities whose residents often tend to earn their living on the water.
This year, Lambda Theta Delta made a $2,000 contribution to the Orange Coast Interfaith Shelter, following the proceeds of the Vibe Dance Competition. We plan on continuing our support for worthy causes such as ths one in the future.

We have found that by taking part in these activities we are encouraging our own growth & development. We find that each time we reach out to help someone else it only helps us to become a bit more complete.
