Our Local Philanthropy
Delta P.A.L.S. is an all girls summer day camp where our sisters serve as camp leaders to young girls in the community. The camp is hosted at the Chatham-Kent Safety Village, who we partnered with to found the camp. The camp empowers young girls through a variety of activities and guest speakers.
In 1954, Delta Zeta’s Convention body voted to make the cause of speech and hearing our national philanthropy.
Delta Zeta members volunteer many hours for speech and hearing organizations in their communities, such as hosting deaf accessibility speakers and running heart for hearing campaigns.
Donations collected assist with speech programs and provide equipment and devices to those who want them. Funds also support programs aimed at hearing loss prevention.
These donations go to the Starkey Hearing Foundation and Gallaudet University. Starkey Hearing Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to reflect caring and change lives around the world. As a member of Clinton Global Initiative, Starkey Hearing Foundation has pledged to provide more than one million hearing aids to people in need this decade and currently gives more than 175,000 hearing aids annually.
