Blair's Foster Socks

In keeping with our motto of 'Sigma Serves Children', our spring philanthropy is Blair's Foster Socks.  Blair's family cared for foster children and Blair always wondered why the babies came to her family without socks.  Blair's plan to start an organization to collect socks for foster children stopped short when she was accidentally killed by a bullet shot into the air on the 4th of July, 2011.  In her memory, her family started the program.  Starting in 2012, KCAC collects new infant/small children's socks at spring meetings & Founders' Day for Blair's Socks. 

2015 - Barbara Smith Thompson, Nu, our Philanthropic Chairperson, delivered 293 pairs of socks and some added money to Blair's Foster Socks.  Thank you for all of your contributions.

Hope House, a Shelter for Abused Women and Their Children

Our alumnae chapter collects items for Hope House at our Fall Meeting and, along with Nu chapter members, we volunteer by giving parties for the children.  Starting in 2012, we have hosted parties for the children at each of the two locations in the GKC area.  Alumnae provide cookies and juice drinks and the collegians help with a craft, play games and read stories to the children. 

Look at the Chapter Events page for the next time we will be volunteering.

Harvesters Community Food Bank

In January, Kansas City Alumnae Chapter volunteers at Harvesters, the local food bank.  We've sacked sweet potatoes, boxed apples and sorted contributions into the appropriate bins.  2018 will be our 8th year to volunteer.  We invite collegians from the area to join us in this project.  

Look at the Chapter Events page for the next time we will be volunteering.
