I was the VP and President of my greek fraternity and it provided me with a lot very meaningful leadership experience, so much so that I'm including it as a most meaningful experience. A big part of my time in leadership included an effort to increase the quantity and quality of our service events, and over the course of 4 years I collected several hundred hours of non-clinical volunteering through the frat.

My question is how to go about organizing that in my activities section. Should I do 2 separate entries, one for the leadership and one for the service as a result of that leadership. Or, my other option is to include the service under the description of my leadership entry somehow.

I appreciate any and all help/opinions. Thanks!

I would do the latter
I was in the exact same position and ended up separating the two. Just because you definitely learn and experience so many different things in a leadership role but that’s MUCH different than what you would experience when you serve the community. If the volunteering was conducted in multiple different ways I’d place it under a catch all Non-clinical community service experiences type title. Idk if this is the best way tbh, just what I ended up doing at it worked out for me!

I'd go with separating them because those are two different activities that your application may be scanned for. If you don't have a separate tag for non-clinical service and leadership a reviewer might miss one or the other.
