Community Service

Comparte tu Felicidad 

#ALPFAUTEP

ALPFA members volunteered at an event named Walk of Hope. This is an annual event, organized by Candlelighters-El Paso, which is a non-profit organization. The community service event served as a way for members to understand more about the community of El Paso. Members were able to help with various activities throughout the day, such as playing with the kids, doing arts and crafts for the event, and organizing toys. 

​Comparte tu Felicidad is an annual community service held in the great border city of El Paso named, Ciudad Juarez. ALPFA – El Paso has been organizing this annual event now for the 4th year in a row. This idea started with the President and Vice-President at the time, as an event to help a group of kids get a toy for Christmas. Today, this event helps about 100 children and teenagers, to get a toy for Christmas. Comparte tu Felicidad is the biggest community service event ALPFA – El Paso has, but it could not be possible without the help of other student organizations in UTEP. This year ALPFA - El Paso decided to collaborate with GEEO, MAES and Vision Mexico. What this three organizations have in common with ALPFA is that all four value giving back to the community and all four organizations have a majority of Latino members.
