National Day of Service

Annually in March, the sisters of Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc. participate in a National Day of Service.  Our organization has always placed special emphasis on hands-on community service activities. SIA's National Day of Service unites Hermanas across the country through service. Members show solidarity by simultaneously participating in service projects throughout the nation.

 

Annual Ribbon Campaigns

In 2008, as part of an effort to place emphasis on some of our traditional hands on projects, our sorority launched the Annual Ribbon Campaigns. In sequential order, they rotate yearly and focus on the following philanthropies: Red Ribbon focuses on HIV/AIDS charities such as AIDSWalk and One Heartland, Gold Ribbon focuses on Special Olympics, and Blue Ribbon focuses on March of Dimes.
