The ideals of Phi Sigma Sigma signify our contributions of helping others and working within our community. The Iota Zeta chapter of Duluth, Minnesota has the opportunity to participate in community wide involvement in helping the elementary aged children of our local schools. Phi Sigma Sigma’s ideals stand on “School and College Readiness”. As active members of this organization we strive to meet these actions set before us 105 years ago. With the ideals of “School and College Readiness,” co-philanthropy chairs, Maren Gustafson and Courtney Cornelius strive to meet new lengths in working with local children in Duluth and furthering our outreach of involvement. In the past several years, Iota Zeta chapter has put on a “Phi, Set, Spike” volleyball fundraiser to help our philanthropy. Due to lack of building space and funds, Maren and Courtney have made the decision to change the philanthropy and its focus to the children's education that they believe so strongly in. Furthermore, the co-chairs have created a website to help reach their goal of raising $4000 to help students in Duluth and all over the nation receive textbooks, school supplies, meals, clothes, and education that we are so fortunate to be receiving at the University of Minnesota Duluth. If you are interested in learning more about the fundraiser please check out our fundraising website at https://www.phisigduluth.org/supportingschools.html.
We would greatly appreciate any help you are willing to offer to advance the education nationwide. With the change in Philanthropy from past years, the co-chairs are striving to create a philanthropy position that works with our community and the children within it for which our ideals stand. Therefore, Maren and Courtney plan to put on a fall festival partnering with the local elementary schools to promote a safe community carnival open to the public and all proceeds go back to the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation to advance education. This carnival will feature games, food, a silent auction, and a trick or treating event for the October themed date. More information about this event will come during the next several months. Phi Sigma Sigma’s philanthropy can not stand without its sisters and those we share our lives with. If you are at all interested in the events and would be willing to donate we could not thank you enough!
