In the last two years, Omicron Delta has raised nearly $5000 to help end the water crisis.  During the year, Omicron Delta hosts "Walk for Water" events that go along with education conferences.  The chapter has walked in many locations such as Indianapolis, Savannah, Chicago, San Francisco, St Louis, and 
Las Vegas.  Indianapolis, IN will be the next location for this event on October 28, 2017.  . 

The 2017 - 2018 campaign has begun!  The goal is to match or beat the 2016-2017 campaign and raise more than $1500.  Donations may be made online, directly to chapter's water.org campaign.  All donations are tax deductible.  To help someone get access to clean water, please consider donating to the 2016-2017 Omicron Delta H2Omicron Delta campaign: Omicron Delta/Water.org
