Community Service Initiatives

October 24, 2012

Welcome back to Terminology Tuesday! Each Tuesday we will blog about some commonly misused terms within the Fraternity. It’s our hope that you take some time to read, laugh, smile, and then use the information to alter your word choices, and the choices of those around you.

Delta Sigma Pi has two national community service initiatives: Make A Difference Day and the National Blood Drive. Make A Difference Day is a national day of helping others — a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Created by USA WEEKEND Magazine, Make A Difference Day is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October (Start making plans for October 27, 2012!). The National Blood Drives runs from September through April and chapters and individuals can sponsor or co-sponsor a blood drive, donate blood or volunteer.

Each province also has a provincial initiative, which is selected annually by your PVP or Provincial Chair and is voted for approval at your Provincial Council meeting. Contact your Provincial Chair with any questions with respect to your Provincial Initiative.

  • Northeastern – American Cancer Society
  • South Central – Habitat for Humanity (Secondary option: Operation Gratitude)
  • Southern – Relay For Life
  • Western – St. Jude
  • North Central – American Cancer Society
