The Miami alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta is partnering with Rhonda Eyes Alliance to collect needed eyeglasses of all kinds. Ask your family members and friends for prescription, reading or sunglasses that will be donated to the people of Haiti. The alliance will travel to Haiti in April to offer assistance to the people of Haiti with eye exams, medications, eye glasses and surgeries. Call any Delta you know and we will be happy to come by and pick them up. Thanks in advance!
I know I am late with this, but as the saying goes, “better late than never!” Deltas honored our beloved Soror Dorothy Graham at our meeting in January as she marked her 96th birthday on Jan. 25th. Did you know that? How wonderful!
