One of our values as Sigma Kappa women is service, and we uphold that value by working hard on our campus and in our community. Every year our entire chapter takes the short trip to Phoenix, Arizona to walk in support of The Walk to End Alzheimer's. In the last semester alone, Spring of 2015, the Theta Omicron chapter of Sigma Kappa logged 832 service hours.
Participating in service projects is a great way to help our community. Time donated is never wasted, but monetary donations are important as well. Sigma Kappa host and supports many different on campus philanthropy events, in hopes of raising funds to make a difference. One of our favorite events was our first annual SKetti Night last semester; a bottomless spaghetti dinner cooked and served by the women of Sigma Kappa. The event was hosted on campus and received Panhellenic, IFC, and community support. In one night we were able to raise $2500, which we donated to Alzheimer's Research.
Alzheimer's Disease and related research is one of Sigma Kappa's five philanthropies. If you would like to read more about what Sigma Kappa contributes in the fight to end Alzheimer's click the "National Philanthropies" tab.
