YWCA Phyllis Wheatley Center

BLESSINGS OVERFLOW: Members of the Knoxville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta joyfully donated more than $1,500 in gift cards to the YWCA Phyllis Wheatley Center in East Knoxville. A portion of the gift cards went directly to children who otherwise wouldn’t see a lot of gifts this Christmas and the other portion when to the center to help buy equipment and snacks. The Phyllis Wheatley Center’s After-School Enrichment Program (ASEP) provides a safe, nurturing environment with structure and accountability for middle-school students at no cost.
