Blankets for Children
Alpha Theta members gather every August to make cozy fleece blankets for the young students at Orleans County Head Start. Every student receives a blanket at the start of the year that is theirs to keep. The blankets are a comfort to the littlest students in our community.
Donations for Local Women's Shelters
An ongoing project for Alpha Theta members is the donation of needed goods to organizations which serve women in distress in Niagara and Orleans counties. Past donations have included linens, personal care products, household items, clothing, and children's toys. Donations are collected at general meetings. Pat Turner, the chair of Alpha Theta's Personal Growth and Services Committee, organizes and distributes the donations on behalf of our members.
This non-profit 501(c)3 founded by William and Joanne Cala promotes improved educational, health and economic conditions for African orphans and their communities by building schools, sponsoring health clinics, providing secondary scholarships, and nurturing sustainable development initiatives – all to promote dignity, opportunity and hope. Alpha Theta sisters provide scholarships for students benefiting from this organization.
