Celebrating 141 Years of Sisterhood

The Week of Giving is a week-long celebration of our history and service, ending with a Founder’s Day celebration. This year we are celebrating 141 years of incredible sisterhood! Each day this week we celebrated a different part of our service.

Monday

We celebrated our campus by sending a potted violet and a handwritten note to Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin and University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe.

Tuesday

Maine Sea Coast Mission is one of our philanthropies. It benefits communities and families impacted by natural disasters in Maine. We had a profit share at Shakespeare’s Pizza to raise money for this organization. We loved spending time with our sisters and enjoying delicious pizza!

Wednesday

We honored our community with an Inherit the Earth service project at Flatbranch Park. It was so fun cleaning up the park with our sisters! It’s always great when we can spend time together and help our community.

Thursday

We are always excited to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s! We spent Gerontology Day at The Bluffs nursing home and spreading awareness on campus and on social media. This is a cause so near and dear to us, so we do all that we can to help.

Friday

We delivered cookie cakes to all 56 fraternities and sororities on campus. It’s great to appreciate all of the other chapters and the amazing things they do.

Saturday

We met up with the Xi chapter, which is the chapter at the University of Kansas, in Kansas City for a wonderful lunch! We loved meeting sisters from another chapter and celebrating such a special day with one another.

Sigma Kappa was founded November 9, 1874, at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. Each year we spend one day honoring and celebrating the five founders and all of the incredible women who came before us.
