The brothers at the Purdue chapter of Theta Xi strive to achieve philanthropic goals every semester, to the purpose of fulfilling our duty to our chapter, college, community, and country. Being a brother means always trying to better yourself, and service to others is a great way to do this!

Habitat works towards our vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. People in your community and all over the world partner with Habitat to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
Taken from National Multiple Sclerosis Society's website:
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
The cause of MS is still unknown. Scientists believe that a combination of environmental and genetic factors contribute to the risk of developing MS.
The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.
