APOMBAA celebrates

64th National Founding Anniversary of Alpha Phi Omega

On March 2, 1950, at the Nicanor Reyes Hall, Room 214, Far Eastern University, Manila, Philippines, the first organization of Alpha Phi Omega outside of the United States of America was established.

“For the last 64 years, the vision and mission of Alpha Phi Omega has ingrained in its members that “Forced kindness deserves no thanks, and willingness to help does not wait until one is asked for.” For an APO member anywhere in the world, to volunteer is second nature, so is to be a leader to communities that they have called home, and a friend to all without prejudice,” said APOMBAA’s Joe Callaway.

APOMBAA celebrated the 64th National Founding Anniversary with members donating blood to the Canadian Blood Services and volunteering with the Siloam Mission. APOMBAA expects to meet its target number of blood donors this April breaking last year’s record. It has also begun a new relationship with Siloam Mission. APOMBAA members from Steinbach have volunteered to help in the basement clean up and participated in the lunch drop-in program.
