What is Project 13?
Since 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated has been committed to promoting Sisterhood, Scholarship and Service. Now, 102 years later we have grown to be a worldwide force of action "impacting lives, and transforming communities." The Project 13 initiative was established during the 2013 centennial sororal celebration; at that time Delta Sigma Theta commemorated the centennial year by putting its support behind 13 choice organizations whose tenets align with the purpose and mission of the sorority. In previous years, our chapter has supported the March of Dimes and the Sisters Network breast cancer walk. In 2014-15, DCP Counties Alumnae Chapter focused on the following two Project 13 organizations:
February is Heart Awareness Month. DCP encourages everyone to participate in the national GO RED for WOMEN campaign by wearing red on the 6th to bring attention to heart disease and stroke incidents. Throughout the month you can find helpful tips and information on the signs and symptoms of the disease by following us on our social media pages at Facebook or Twitter. The Physical and Mental Committee will also have the signature red dress pin of the American Heart Association GO RED campaign available to Deltas at the February chapter meeting. All Deltas are welcomed to attend.
