Charlotte Deltas to host charity event

Each sorority of the Pan-Hellenic Council (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta) is invited to join Delta women as they collect gifts for needy children.

The Charlotte alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. will hold its 11th annual “Sisters-On-The- Square” event to benefit Birthday Blessings.

The event is open to the public.

Each sorority of the Pan-Hellenic Council (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta) is invited to join Delta women in sisterhood and solidarity. Each sorority will occupy a corner of the square dressed in its organization’s colors.

The sororities will collect donations for Birthday Blessings, a non-profit that brings birthday joy and support to homeless children and their families. Birthday Blessings believes that every child’s life deserves to be celebrated, regardless of circumstance.

Participants are asked to bring hand-held electronic games, basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, African American dolls, jewelry & beauty sets (for tweens/teens), and/or gift cards, (Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Tree, etc.)

Sisters on the Square has become a popular event,” says Antoinette Cody, chapter President. “And it is a great way to fellowship with other Greek organizations, while giving back to the community.”

Other sisterhood activities for March included Delta members conducting random acts of kindness, game night, line dancing and attending church.
