Gamma Theta Sigma Provides Food Boxes

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Gamma Theta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc provided food to local families for Thanksgiving. The recipients were families with school aged children, foster parents, parents and grandparents who were all surprised and very grateful to receive the food boxes.  

The grandmother of one of the families said “ I was just trying to figure out what we were going to do for food for Thanksgiving when I received the call that we were going to get a food box.”

The food boxes contained turkey, stuffing, ham, green beans, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes, dinner rolls,  sweet potato pie, chocolate pound cake, eggs, breakfast sausage, milk and iced tea. 

The Gamma Theta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. provides food boxes to families in need each year.  The event is a community service project which supports the Sorority’s slogan  “Greater Service, Greater Progress”.
