PCAA is a voluntary organization dedicated to preventing the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children. They build awareness, promote and implement prevention efforts and work to ensure ensure that every child has a great childhood because our children are our future. SDT paired up with PCAA in hopes to DefΣΔΤ Child Abuse.
Sigma Delta Tau supports the mission of Jewish Women International-to make certain that all girls and women have the fundamental right to live in a safe home, thrive in healthy relationships and realize the full potential of their personal strength.
Sig Delt Shakedown, created in November 2015, was SDT's first campus wide dance competition with 5 sororities and 8 fraternities participating, with a special guest performance from the Uha Steppaz. Guest judges included President of the university, Walter Harrison and Greek Life Advisor, Felicia Bumpus. We raised over $7,000 for our national philanthropy, Prevent Child Abuse America, resulting in the highest monetary donation from a Greek organization on UHart's campus! SDT was featured in the Hartford Informer and recognized by the Center Of Community Service. We are so proud of our event and can't wait until next year!
For the past 2 years, Sigma Delta Tau and Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity pair up for our annual ΣΔΤ Pi event, a pie eating contest between sororities, fraternities and sports teams. Last year we raised over $800 for our philanthropies Prevent Child Abuse America and Gift Of Life Foundation. We can't wait for this February to host our 3rd ΣΔΤ Pi, with PIZZA!
Every philanthropy week in early September, Sigma Delta Tau hosts the annual Derby Day competition! Sororities and Fraternities compete against each other in many fun games of Wiffle ball in hopes of taking home the championship. This past year, we raised over $850 for Prevent Child Abuse America, and hope to double our donation in 2016!
Every year, Jewish Women International has partnered with Sigma Delta Tau chapters nationwide to create Girls Achieve Grapeness! – a campaign empowering the next generation to break the cycle of violence against women. It began with a custom shade of OPI nail polish created to support JWI programs that help girls and young women become safe and independent. We sell them for $10 in November for Domestic Violence Awareness month, and in February for Teen Dating Violence and Awareness month.
