Something "Nu"; the Nu Psi Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc's virtual event to support Sheltering Grace via Project Cradle Care
Greater Service, Greater Progress is the philosophical approach in which all members of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. incorporate when it comes to providing service and outreach in their immediate community and service area. Coming off their recent Centennial Celebration (as the sorority is founded on November 12, 1922 on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, IN), the Nu Psi Sigma Chapter (upon their chartering on July 9, 2023), whose service area includes Paulding and Douglas Counties, along with West Cobb County, builds upon a solid legacy of community enrichment under their chapter motto of "Watch us Work"!
Their current service program exemplifies this mindset, and the community is invited to be a part of their current endeavor which aligns with a key national program.
Under the Project Cradle Care program (in collaboration with the March of Dimes), the focus is to build awareness and address issues that adversely affect African-American women and their children. Ranging from chronic psychological stressors to underlying health conditions to economic disparities, the goal is to reduce outcome and related disparities within said communities, especially as it relates to maternal health within the African-American community.
As a result, their current project leads to the chapter hosting a virtual raffle.
Proceeds from the raffle are earmarked to Sheltering Grace; the 501c3/nonprofit entity provides programming and access to resources related to addressing the areas of concern which align with the national program (Project Cradle Care). With the opportunity to win one of three featured items (note the flyer for details), the chapter's goal is to raise $5000 to support the foundation's efforts.
The raffle concludes on January 13, 2024. For additional details, readers may contact Ms. April Lowther via the chapter email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (404-580-7202) as she is serving as the Program Chair for the event.
Truly, there's something "Nu" in the West/Northwest Metro-Atlanta area.
And via their efforts aligned with Project Cradle Care, support for Sheltering Grace can lead to improved community awareness and engagement related to a public health issue.
