International Awareness: Hands to Give

May 1st – 5th – The Knoxville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. wants you to help us empower women!

To overcome barriers to education and healthy living for young women and mothers of single-parent homes, KAC invites the community to support the cause to raise funds for young girls of the Ashanti Region in Ghana and Garífuna women of Honduras.

Some of the ways your donation will be used? $25 = food for 2 weeks for a family of 6. $5 = 6 packs of menstrual pads (lack of menstrual pads for these young girls can result in them missing up to a week of school per month).
