What is the community service, philanthropy, or cause that your organization most frequently supports? Sigma Kappa most frequently supports the Alzheimer's Disease Foundation, however we also support the Maine Sea Cost Mission, Gerontology Research, Inherit the Earth, and W.E.A.V.E.
What program(s) or event(s) does your organization at Sacramento State coordinate to support the community service, philanthropy, or cause mentioned above? The main program we coordinate is Hot Shots which is a basketball tournament that all the fraternities on campus can participate in. All the money raised goes to our Alzheimer's foundation but we also have the fraternities bring in toys for the Main Sea Cost Mission foundation and clothes from the sororities for W.E.A.V.E. Also, during one week in the Spring semester we clean up our campus, local parks, or neighborhoods around us for Inherit the Earth which helps keep our city and streets clean. In the Fall along with Hot Shots, we make cards and gifts, usually picture frames, for the people in Senior Citizen Homes to help support the study of Gerontology.
