As we extend our arms......
Alpha Zeta Sorority is based on the foundation and principle of Community Service. Our
community service consist of any volunteer service that may be need within the community
or on campus. Sigma Alpha Zeta served at various multi-cultural
|events such as the Afribean Festival,
showcased traditional foods, clothes, and music of African Americans and other Caribbean
cultures. We also participated in event called "College making it Happened."
Here we were able to help high school students obtain information on furthering their
education after high school. We also volunteer our time at city sponsored events such as
Cinco de Mayo festival held in the downtown San Jose.
For the second year in a row , we had volunteered our services
and participated in City Year "Serve A-Thon" which gears towards helping the
community. This entails the planting of trees which helps the environment to sorting
clothes at the Goodwill clothing store which benefits the homeless. As an organization we
have adopt Orchard Middle School which consist of various sisters volunteering their time
to tutor low income students ranging from math to English. We nourish our sisterhood bound
through coming together in serving the community and every year we expand our willing
hearts to help others.
interpretation of Philanthropy......
We found a means to support ethnic women at institutions of
higher education. As a result, the women of Sigma Alpha Zeta have
|recognized the importance of
community involvement. With this realization, Sigma Alpha Zeta understands that with
education comes self-improvement and empowerment, the sisters of Sigma Alpha Zeta have
placed our focus on the children of the future and their education. Orchard School has
been adopted as
|our local philanthropy
where sisters are able to demonstrate their compassion and interest by involvement in
tutoring and mentoring services as well as creating activities that would otherwise be
nonexistent for the children at this school. In participating in these activities we hope
to encourage these children to invest in their future by furthering their education at
institutions of higher education.
