Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc., Theta Mu Sigma Chapter, continues implementing national programs in the Forsyth County community.

In March the chapter concluded Operation Big Book Bag, a national sorority project which focuses on providing school supplies to kids in need. The chapter provides donations yearly to local schools and this year’s receipts were Crosby Scholars at Winston Salem Prep Academy in Winston Salem.

Theta Mu Sigma Chapter also hosted a Youth Symposium at the Carl Russell Sr. Recreation Center on March 29. The focus was on the importance of one’s financial future. The presenter was Daniel Freeman from Darda Financial Services LLC in Winston Salem, who provided helpful tips for beginning a savings account, investments and encouraged that it’s never too early to foster an entrepreneurial spirit. The children’s ages ranged from pre-teen to teenagers. Prizes were awarded and snacks provided.

Also, Sigma Soror for the month of March was Evelyn Sanders the current Basileus/President of Theta Mu Sigma Chapter. She represents Sigma in various organizations such as Phi Delta Kappa and National Organization of Negro Women to name a few and is a Deaconess at Mt. Zion Baptist Church on Greater Cleveland Avenue in Winston-Salem.

Theta Mu Sigma volunteered to help Alpha Mu Sigma Chapter with Big Brother Big Sister’s annual Bowl-a-Thon on March 4. There was a great turnout for a worthy cause. The chapter also attended Kappa Alpha Phi’s Middle Eastern Province Public Meeting on April 7, to share some sisterly and brotherly love.

The chapter held a fundraiser at Chipotle Restaurant on Monday April 17, located at 1020 S Main St Suite G in Kernersville. Theta Mu Sigma Chapter received 50 percent of proceeds collected between 5-9 p.m. The funds will be used for sorority national programs like Operation Big Book Bag, the youth symposium and March of Dimes. The chapter volunteered at the March for Babies Walk in Winston-Salem on April 22. The money raised for March of Dimes is used toward groundbreaking preventative research that will keep mom, baby, and family together and healthy, on both a local and global level.

Theta Mu Sigma Chapter attended the Regional Conference for Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. in Uniondale, New York on April 26-30. The chapter looks forward to continued service in the community.
