In the month of March, The Rochester Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority donated over 60 suitcases to the children living at Hillside so that children leaving or transferring between services will not need to carry their belongings in plastic garbage bags. Pictured here are Grace Douglas and Brenda Murphy-Pough from Sigma Theta and Greg Reynolds, Hillside Integration Operations Manager.
Pastors and local churches were asked to partner with Delta Sigma Theta to help reach a goal of collecting 100 pieces of luggage to donate to youth in foster care. There were 9 participating churches: Greece Road Church of God in Christ, Mt. Vernon, Trinity Emmanuel, St John’s Episcopal Church, Baber AME Church, St Monica’s, St. Bridget’s Immaculate Conception, Aenon Baptist Church and Zion Hill.
Members of Delta Sigma Theta in each of these churches spearheaded the process and made donations with their churches. Over 200 pieces of luggage and 50 bags, and around 10 back packs were collected.
Thank you Delta Sigma Theta for your support of Hillside youth!
