Meet Andrea Black Our VP 2019 Foundation

My name is Andrea Black and I am so honored to have been given the opportunity to serve as vp: Foundation for Delta Lambda this year.

In Mississippi alone, over 107,000 people are blind or visually impaired. When the women of Delta Gamma saw this need, they knew they were called to make a difference, so they started service for sight, Delta Gamma’s very own foundation. Now, through Service for Sight, our chapter has donated over 70,000 dollars to vision related philanthropies across the country.

As members of Delta Gamma, we also support the Joining Forces Program. This program was also created by the Delta Gamma Fraternity in order to give back to the service men and women who have suffered vision impairments while serving our country. One of the many ways that we do this is by writing letters to veterans during our annual Valentine’s Dinner, thanking them for the great sacrifices that they have made.

Our philanthropy is a major part of our efforts to live by our motto “Do Good,” and I hope that you will join us in participating in this wonderful opportunity to impact our local community as well as our nation.

We raise our money annually through two philanthropy events: Anchor Games & Lasagna Dinner in the fall, and Milk and Cookies in the Spring. Anchor Games is a flag football tournament. Anyone can get a team together and participate in this two day single elimination flag football tournament. At the end of the second day of Anchor Games, we host our Lasagna Dinner at the DG house. In the spring, we host Milk and Cookies, where people can come and get chocolate chip cookies, milk, and listen to live music.

Additionally, our chapter has the honor of being able to host the Dorothy Garrett Martin Lectureship in Values and Ethics. Through this lectureship program, we are privileged to host an influential speaker that comes and speaks on our Mississippi State campus. This event is free of charge and open to the public. Most recently, Delta Gamma hosted Sadie and Kori Robertson from the show Duck Dynasty, to speak this past year. This is such an exciting thing for members of our chapter, because we get to hear the amazing message they bring, and also get to meet them at a reception afterwards at the Delta Gamma house.
