Chapter Philanthropy and Service
As members of Tri Delta, it is our responsibility to do everything in our power to raise money and awareness for our amazing philanthropy, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since partnering with St. Jude in 1999, Tri Delta has raised over $75 million for St. Jude.
Our chapter, Beta Omicron, is honored to have been able to contribute to that impressive total. We are able to fundraise for St. Jude through various events throughout the school year. Every year, our two main events are Delta’s House of Pancakes (DHOP) and Sincerely Yours. DHOP is an event in which we make pancakes and other breakfast items for our friends, families, and the community. Sincerely Yours is a letter writing event where we send letters to our families and friends to spread the word about St. Jude and ask for donations. We also include a few other smaller events throughout the year. Last year we hosted Kisses for Cancer, where we heard from a guest patient speaker that shared her St. Jude store and we also had a social media push around the holidays. Last year, with all those events, our chapter was able to raise over $40,000 for St. Jude. This was an extremely exciting total since, because of the pandemic during 2020, we were not able to raise the funds we typically do. Luckily, our total of over $40,000 last year made up for it a little bit, and hopefully this year we can top $40,000 and hit a new record for the funds our chapter raises for St. Jude.
