The Remarkable Rho Xi Zeta Chapter Presents the 5th Annual Taste of Blue: Celebrating 97 Years of Scholarship, Service, Sisterly Love, and Finer Womanhood

The Ladies of  Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. Rho Xi Zeta Chapter celebrated Founder’s Day with their 5th annual Taste of Blue event.  Not only was it a celebration of the 97th anniversary of Zeta Phi Beta, this year’s event was even more special because it was also MLK Day.  Founder’s Day was also the official kickoff to Zeta Phi Beta’s Global Year of Service.  The Remarkable Rho Xi Zeta Chapter will begin their journey as Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. strives to complete 20 million hours of service between now and the Sorority’s 100th anniversary in 2020.  

Admission to Taste of Blue is free and guests enjoyed music, food, and a variety of vendors while fellowshipping and celebrating the founding of our great sorority.  

Beta Omega Zeta Chapter Act of Service to Albany Tornado Victims

On January 10th, the ladies of Beta Omega Zeta Chapter provided 30 laundry vouchers for 30 households that were affected by the tornado in Albany, GA in January. The chapter went door to door in the community giving vouchers for those who were in need of laundry services due to lost power. Beta Omega Zeta will continue this act of service for the remainder of the month for those who are interested in contributing to this initiative.  Please continue to keep the city of Albany  in your prayers. 


Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Omicron Alpha Zeta Chapter volunteered at the Harvest of Hope Food Pantry. Sorors collected, packed, and distributed cans, dry goods, and fresh vegetables to over 200 families for the Christmas season.

Responding to the call of Jesus Christ, the Harvest of Hope Food Pantry feeds the hungry, promotes physical and spiritual health, and brings people together in a community of love. It has an all-volunteer staff and serves approximately 500 families receive food each month. 


Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Omicron Alpha Zeta Chapter in Partnership with Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church co-hosted a Christmas Program for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (AWANA) and Angel Tree® youth. The youth performed various fun-filled songs, speeches, and a skit and enjoyed a generous Christmas Fellowship Dinner with all the trimmings! 

Omicron Alpha Zeta donated 70 gifts to the youth comprised of hats, gloves, and scarves. AWANA is a youth ministry of Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church that is dedicated to the conviction that the church’s most fruitful mission is reaching children. Angel Tree® is a program of the Prison Fellowship that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ.

Also, the Sorors of Omicron Alpha Zeta  provided gifts to 55 residents of its adopted facility, the Lillian Carter Rehabilitation Center. We provided the Activities Center with large puzzle books, socks, slippers, cards, and games. The residents were very excited!
