In 1954, Delta Zeta’s Convention body voted to make the cause of speech and hearing loss one of our national philanthropies.
Delta Zeta members volunteer many hours for speech and hearing organizations in their communities, such as tutoring children with hearing challenges or spearheading fundraising initiatives.
Donations collected assist with speech programs and provide equipment and devices to those with hearing challenges. Funds also support programs aimed at hearing loss prevention.
In addition, Delta Zeta has national partnerships focused on speech and hearing-related causes with The Starkey Hearing Foundation and Gallaudet University.
Noise-induced hearing loss is on the rise and can be prevented. Delta Zeta’s Learn 2 Listen Week seeks to educate others about protecting their delicate hearing. Learn 2 Listen Week will be supported by all Delta Zeta collegiate and alumnae chapters. The dates are April 19-25.
Our chapter will be handing out earplugs on Friday, April 24th outside of the Bryce Jordan Center before the Garth Brooks concert. During the philanthropy round of recruitment potential new members decorated cute burlap bags and placed a pair of earplugs in them. They will be put to great use soon!
