In addition to the tireless efforts we put into Sigma Kappa's five national philanthropies, we also make a point to support sisters with any philanthropic services they are passionate about. This includes, but is not limited to; annual school supplies drive, can drives, and funding philanthropic indicatives for local families and alumni. We also participate in Appalachian State’s annual homecoming blood drive, MLK Day Challenge, Dance Marathon and Relay for Life! We are proud to say we raised over $15,000 for philanthropic initiatives las year.
