Feed the Homeless
Since 2004, Delta Tau Lambda Chapter brothers volunteer to feed the homeless at First Institutional Baptist Church (FIBC) in an effort to improve the lives of individuals in the greater Phoenix area, the third Friday each month. On average more than 150 guests are fed at FIBC Feed the Homeless and Delta Tau Lambda brothers are an intricate part of the process. Brothers come out once a month roll up their sleeves and do what ever in necessary to serve. Brothers take on roles such as: setting up, food preparation, serving food, cleaning up and interacting with the guest.

Making a difference in a child's life is as easy as taking him to a sporting event, grabbing pizza together or teaching him to throw a football. We have several members of Delta Tau Lambda that have become Big Brothers and we also invite other young men in the program to our activities.
Recognizing that non-profit organizations survive on contributions, we have raised thousands of dollars for Arizona Big Brothers Big Sisters in 2010.
