Baked Xiti is one of many initiatives the sisters of the Iota Mu Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta participate in to raise awareness and funds for the sorority’s philanthropic partner, Autism Speaks. Since their partnership was formed in 2009, the national women’s fraternal organization has raised more than $8 million for autism.

Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.

The Iota Mu Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta was installed at Lycoming College in the spring of 2005. Alpha Xi Delta inspires women to realize their potential by providing opportunities for sisterhood, leadership knowledge, and service. The national women’s fraternity has more than 175,000 initiated members and chapters on 134 college campuses. For more information, visit http://lycoming.alphaxidelta.org.
