Xi Xi Zeta Answers to March of Dimes Call

When Zeta calls, we answer one and all. Xi Xi Zeta answered the call by volunteering with and for one of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. partners, March of Dimes.
The March of Dimes is the name of an annual charity event sponsored by the organization of the same name. The fundraiser, now called the March for Babies, is an annual walk to raise money to help fight birth defects and infant mortality. The organization is a non-profit health charity organization geared toward improving the health of babies.
Today, the March of Dimes is one of the largest and most successful not-for-profit organizations in the United States. It relies on contributions to further its goals, including those raised through events such as the March for Babies. In fundraisers like these, participants walk fixed amounts for pledges of money and contributions from others to the foundation.

March of Dimes reached out to local Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. chapters to help put packages together to get ready for 2016 campaign and kickoff.  On January 15, 2016,   Xi Xi Zeta chapter members answered the call by volunteering at the March of Dimes office located at 1776 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA. We gave six (6) volunteer hours to help put materials together for the campaign.
