In the Fall 2018 semester, our philanthropy chair and fundraising chair worked in tandem to launch our first Sigma Cares philanthropy/fundraising week. The events throughout the week consisted of a Tea-Do fundraiser, a Blaze fundraiser, and a Halloween-themed candy gram fundraiser. Over the course of the week, we raised $1,416 in total, half of which went to On The Rise Inc., a local organization that helps support homeless women get back on their feet.
We also had the pleasure of visiting On The Rise Inc. to volunteer in person as well. Our sisters had an amazing time dedicating their day to volunteering and learning more about what the organization does.
