Delta Sigma Theta Gives back

I just came across this story, and its pretty awesome that they were able to turn a negative for them into something positive for others.
As Tropical Storm Barry encroached on the New Orleans area Friday, the Delta Sigma Theta sorority made a tough decision — to conclude its 16,000-person biennial national convention early. But then came an easier decision: saving the convention’s 17,000 uneaten meals for those affected by the storm.
Beverly E. Smith, Delta Sigma Theta’s national president and chief executive, said in an email that the sorority was “delighted” to donate the food from a canceled luncheon and evening gathering, catered by the company Centerplate.

TWO THUMBS WAY UP for these ladies! For all the bad press we get, efforts like this should make us ALL proud of our Greek affiliations.

Nicely played, sisters....

Our foreign exchange student rep hosted an orientation several days ago and her Delta daughter was at the convention. She had just called her mom to tell her about the sorority's decision. So impressive!

I had just copied this story to come and post it here—but it appears I am late to the party. I LOVE the way they have back. It truly epitomizes the spirit of sisterhood.

I was on FB and one of my friends who is a Delta Sigma Theta had posted a link to the story. I was so incredibly heart warming, not to mention I'm glad the food just didn't end up in the trash given the circumstances.

Being a member of a GLO is so much more than partying and socializing, its about giving back to others.

Thumbs up

So very proud of the Delta Sigma Theta ladies, and their sincere generosity!

Would love to see some more PR such as this from the Greek Community1
