Sigma Gamma Rho is celebrating its 94th Founders’ Day this year and they have launched the #7KFoundersChallenge to honor their founders and their long history of service.
On November 1st, the sorority kicked off a month-long initiative to volunteer 7,000 hours in the month of November. Celebrating their 94th Founders’ Day on November 12, members of the sorority will contribute community service hours in honor of their seven founders.
“Chapters across the country and around the globe will join forces with the sorority’s affiliate groups, the Philos – friends of the sorority – and the Rhoers – mentees of sorority members -, to participate in various community service programs through Project Reassurance, the umbrella for all national service initiatives,” the press release for the initiative states.
“Members and affiliates can also do their own service projects such as participating in voter mobilization efforts, mentoring and tutoring youth, working at food banks, providing financial literacy, helping a Girl Scout troop with a STEM project or hosting other options to help complete or surpass the 7,000-hour goal.”
“Service is a source of pride and a core value for our members and affiliates who are eager to make positive contributions in the areas where they live and work,” said Deborah Catchings-Smith, Sigma Gamma Rho international president. “As an international organization, we are proud to dedicate an entire month of service in honor of our seven founders and make a true impact in our communities.”
Make sure to follow Sigma Gamma Rho and the #7KFoundersChallenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to view photos, videos and community service activities.
