The Greenville Independent School District (GISD) is celebrating a heartwarming initiative that promises to make a significant impact on local students. The Mu Zeta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, based at Texas A&M Commerce, has generously donated 500 drawstring backpacks filled with essential school supplies to empower young learners for success.
The charitable act aims to support students from Carver Elementary, Crockett Elementary, Travis Intermediate, and Greenville Middle School as they embark on a new academic year.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated's mission is to enhance the quality of life for women and their families in the U.S. and around the world through community service, civil, and social action. The sorority is committed to achieving greater progress in areas such as education, health awareness, and leadership development. Its members, affiliates, staff, and community partners collaborate to create and support initiatives that align with this mission, striving to make a positive impact on the lives of those they serve.
This commendable donation was made possible through the generosity of Parkland Hospital, demonstrating the power of collaboration between community organizations. The Mu Zeta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. also rallied support from local retailers including Walmart, Dollar General, and Staples, along with undertaking a door-to-door campaign in Commerce, TX.
Natalie Pegg, the Community Relations Coordinator at Greenville ISD, expressed her gratitude, saying, "We are immensely thankful for the support of the Mu Zeta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Their contributions exemplify the transformative power of community collaboration."
This initiative underscores the educational community's collective efforts and aligns perfectly with GISD's motto for the year, "Forward Together." The partnership between the Mu Zeta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., and the local school district highlights the positive impact that can be achieved through unity and shared goals.
