Since 2005—during the height of relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina—the American Red Cross has been Delta Sigma Phi’s national philanthropic and service partner. Through combined efforts with the Red Cross, Delta Sigs are able to be Better Men who create Better Lives for their community.
Each chapter of Delta Sig maintains a relationship with its local Red Cross chapter to strengthen our partnership and philanthropic reach. Relationships focus on Blood, Sweat & Cash. Throughout the year, our chapters host campus/community-wide blood drives, perform community service and fundraise for the Red Cross. Below are a few of the ways Delta Sig members partner with Red Cross:
National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness month, sponsored by the Red Cross. Throughout this month, the National Fraternity and chapters distribute preparedness materials and support various Red Cross initiatives.
National Red Cross Month
March marks National Red Cross month and Delta Sig’s largest push for Blood, Sweat & Cash. During this month, chapters are encouraged to host large-scale philanthropy events and blood drives, as well as volunteer with their local Red Cross.
