Over the last few days our country’s Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states suffered through one of the top five most destructive hurricanes in recorded history, Hurricane Sandy. The devastating impacts of Sandy have caused an estimated $20 billion in damages stretching from Florida to New England. With the majority of our sisters living in the impacted states, the Executive Board of Directors and Alumnae Chapter Board extend our deepest sympathies to all those who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy and hope that you and your families are safe.
There are many things that we cannot put a price on… generations of memories burned to ashes, decades of hard work washed away by the surges, tens of lives lost, and millions of families spending days if not weeks in darkness. Many things lost during this tragic disaster will not and can never be recovered, rebuilt, or replaced… and yet we must move forward. Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority is joining efforts being made across the country to provide support and relief for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Sigma Psi Zeta Sorority’s Executive Board of Directors and Alumnae Chapter Board will be collecting donations via the Alumnae Gift Program on the national website between now and Veteran’s Day Monday, November 12th, 2012 11:59pm EST. Donations will also be collected in person at the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regional Rallies. All contributions received will be donated to the American Red Cross to support Hurricane Sandy relief. I encourage all of you to donate any amount that you are comfortable and remember that a small amount in a large quantity can really add up!
How you can donate:
- Alumnae Gift Program at http://www.sigmapsizeta.org between now and Nov 12th, 2012 11:59pm EST.
- Donations will be collected in person at MARR and NERR.
