To celebrate their line’s 25th anniversary, the ladies of the Delta Kappa Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. from Central State University organized three community service projects during Homecoming.
They designated Friday as their day of service and started off at a Dayton Ohio area middle school where they hosted an anti-bullying workshop for girls created by one of their line sisters, Angela Davis, called “No More Mean Girls”. In the afternoon, they visited a group of 4th graders where another one of their line sisters, Dr.Pamela Reaves read her book, “The Terrible Life of a Ten Year Old: How to Conquer a Bully”.
The women followed this up by going on campus and organizing a campus pantry for the Emerging Scholars program. This program supports students who have aged out of foster care.
They were able to donate over $1,000 in cash, $200 in gift certificates to a black owned thrift store, over $100 in gas cards and a brand new pantry full of much needed items.
“We knew we wanted to party, but it was important for us to celebrate with service as a reminder of why we joined our illustrious sorority 25 years ago,” one of the sorors told Watch The Yard.
The month leading up to Homecoming, the line collected donations of cash, toiletries, hair care products, laundry supplies and non perishable food items.
Later that night, in true Delta fashion, the line sisters partied like it was 1993!
We at Watch The Yard would like to commend these women on their work and service. This is what it is all about!
