Sisters Everywhere Celebrate Founders' Day

The Foundation would like to recognize all of our sisters who served others as a tribute to our Founders' Day. We have heard from chapters and individuals from all across North America who have shared their selfless acts of giving with us. Here is just one example:

"To honor our founders I purchased a live Christmas tree for a young Marine wife (and her kids) who live at Camp Pendleton in San Diego who will be alone this Christmas while her husband is in Iraq fighting for our country. Hopefully this small gesture will brighten their holidays and give them something that they wouldn't be able to have otherwise."
-- Gina, Delta Gamma '86

Did you do something to honor the legacy of our founders? If so, tell us about it by emailing us at or leave your story as a "comment" to this post. We look forward to hearing from you!

Alumnae Chapters Shine!

Phi Sigma Sigma alumnae chapters are helping to make a difference in communities all across the country. Here are just two examples of the amazing projects our alumnae are involved in.

Southern LA County Alumnae Chapter reported:

"The chapter participated in Sight Night this October with the CSU Dominguez Hills Institute for Cultural Diversity. We collected 109 eyeglasses which are being donated to the Lions Club for refurbishing and distribution."

Las Vegas Alumnae Chapter wrote to say:
"We recently participated in a great local cause for Make a Difference Day. "Goodie Two Shoes" works with the Boys & Girls Clubs and provided new shoes, socks, backpacks, school supplies and lunch to 1240 kids in one morning! Payless Shoes closes several stores and the kids get to pick any shoes they want! They also get 6 pairs of socks and the backpacks/supplies. We had two celebrities at my location - Miss Nevada (a Greek, but not a Phi Sig) and Kenny Anderson, a professional skateboarder. Very cool people!"

Has your chapter done something great to live our core value of "leadership through service?" If so, email the Foundation at to tell us about it! Who knows, maybe you'll see your chapter highlighted in the Foundation's blog!
