In January 1954, Alpha Gam sister Margaret Moffat Toy pioneered the first home-delivery meal program in the U.S. That program is now known as Meals on Wheels. Today, we are proud partners with both Meals on Wheels and Feeding America. Through service, awareness and fundraising, we join their efforts in the fight to overcome food insecurity right here on our own community.
The Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose calls us to “welcome the opportunity of contributing to the world’s work.” In addition to our fight against hunger, Alpha Gams all across North America participate in an annual Week of Service each February. Collegiate and alumnae members serve in a variety of ways and contribute their time, energy, funds and voices to joyfully serve others.
Serving our communities and contributing to the world’s work are values that each Alpha Gamma Delta sister strives to uphold. Through membership in Alpha Gamma Delta, our sisters have a multitude of opportunities to volunteer on campus and in the local community.
Alpha Gamma Delta has switched its philanthropic focus from Diabetes awareness to helping fight hunger! This is an exciting transition that will take place over the summer of 2017. This new cause will allow Alpha Gams to make an impact and get more involved within their local community. Our chapter will continue to hold many philanthropic events to raise money as well as participate in local volunteer opportunities, all benefiting our new cause.
We focus our philanthropic events on raising money to benefit this important cause, as well as the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation.
The Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation provides grants that support members and other individuals suffering from hunger. Through the Foundation, Alpha Gams are awarded scholarships, emergency financial support, and leadership training. Overall, the Foundation impacts and enriches our communities by providing essential support for education, philanthropy and leadership.
