The Phi Delta Chi Pharmacy Fraternity has pledged to raise $200,000 over the next 4 years for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, located in Memphis, Tenn.
The fraternity's "Prescription for Hope" initiative will focus on a letterwriting campaign by all of the fraternity's college chapters. On completion of this commitment, one of the hospital's several outpatient pharmacies will be named in honor of Phi Delta Chi. The fraternity chose the children's hospital as its national philanthropy in 1995.
