In line with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.’s national Strategic Partnerships Task Force, the Washington DC Alumnae Chapter’s Community Mobilization Committee seeks to connect and engage with agencies and organizations whose missions align with the mission and vision of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and will continue the legacy of global service that will empower our communities.
Washington DC Alumnae Chapter (WDCAC), through its Community Mobilization Committee, continues to support eight partnerships, collectively known as our charitable partners. These partnerships have included raising funds and supporting the March of Dimes and participating in the March of Dimes Walk to improve the health of mothers and babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality; encouraging members to support and join the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) which leads, advocates for and empowers women of African descent, their families and communities; raising funds and participating in the St. Jude’s Walk for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in order to advance cures and preventions for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment; health fairs to support the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association; raising funds and supporting the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF USA), the largest child advocacy agency which helps save and protect the world’s most vulnerable children; and funding and supporting the Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF), which promotes research which identifies and fashions solutions to issues affecting African American women and their families nationally and globally.
Additionally, Community Mobilization donates food for those individuals who lack consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life, via food drives, providing Thanksgiving bags and gift cards, conducting Angel Tree, which provides gifts and clothing to children and infant and toddlers as needed.
Through the Sorority’s partnership with the Children’s Defense Fund, the Community Mobilization Committee also donated culturally relevant books to Amidon-Bowen Elementary School in Ward 6 and Statesmen Academy for Boys in Ward 8. Further, Community Mobilization has helped WDCAC distribute 17,500 masks and over 7,300 bottles of hand sanitizer throughout the city to help keep residents safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are always looking to partner with other organizations that provide relevant and life changing programs for those that are in need. If that is your organization, please contact us at email@example.com.
