Protecting the gift of sight is one of Delta Gamma's highest priorities. Through the four schools founded by Delta Gammas, children who are blind or visually impaired learn specialized skills. Our members volunteer countless hours with more than 150 sight related organizations. The Foundation gives annual grants to organizations sharing our Service for Sight mission.
Collect box tops and donate them to any school for the blind. Each coupon is worth 10¢ when the school redeems them from General Mills. The program is designated for schools with grades kindergarten and up. Three of the Delta Gamma schools participate in this program and you are welcome to mail your box tops to the Blind Children's Center, Los Angeles; the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired, Kansas City; or the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments, St. Louis.
For help locating a state or local blind school, contact the Director: Collegiate Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Service for Sight: Joining Forces is an adjunct to the existing Delta Gamma Service for Sight philanthropy. The purpose of this initiative is to present a vehicle for Delta Gamma collegians and alumnae to support and give back to those service men and women who have experienced vision impairment, eye trauma or vision loss.
This is accomplished through service provided by collegiate chapters and alumnae groups and individual members throughout North America as well as through philanthropic grants provided by the Foundation to organizations that share this mission.
The Joining Forces Service Guide provides instructions on how to implement a program from start to finish.
Delta Gamma Fraternity and Foundation are proud to work with Joining Forces spokesman retired United States Navy Lt. Brad Snyder. Brad was blinded in Afghanistan in 2011 by a roadside bomb. One year later, to the day of the explosion, he won two gold medals in swimming at the 2012 London Paralympics. See the video below for more on Brad's message of hope delivered during a recent trip to The Ohio State University.
The Golden Anchor Program assists Delta Gamma senior citizens, as well as other senior citizens who reside in health care facilities throughout the United States and Canada. Delta Gammas bring joy to their lives through personal interaction and the bonds of friendship.
