Today is a big day! Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. is celebrating their 98th Founders Day.
The sorority started the morning off by being featured on the Ricky Smiley Morning Show and then did a takeover with Essence on Facebook Live.
While this year may have been a tumultuous one with COVID-19, natural disasters, the movement against police brutality and the election, the sorors of Sigma Gamma Rho have continuously stepped up to the plate, making the world around them a better place.
This year they registered countless voters for the election, hosted a huge Voter Engagement Forum, teamed up with the NAACP for the “Get Out The Census” campaign, partnered with Sisters National Inc. to provide free mammograms to underserved women in low income communities during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and raised over $160,000 on a goal of $75,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Fellow Divine Nine fraternities and sororities took to social media to congratulate the sorors.
We at Watch The Yard will be showing extra love to the SGRhos with a total SGRho takeover on our social media channels today! Head over to our Instagram account to check it our for yourself!
