Delta Zeta Member Gives Back in Honduras

Delta Zeta Member Gives Back in Honduras

12/02/2018


JSU student Bethany Hunt, a member of Delta Zeta sorority, traveled to Honduras earlier this month to volunteer for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. She and a national team of Delta Zeta members helped fit more than 1,200 people of all ages - from children to grandparents - with hearing aids in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. 

Delta Zeta’s national philanthropic program, Heart for Hearing, provides a variety of ways for the sorority’s chapters and members to raise money and awareness for speech and hearing. 

“Speech and hearing have been a part of Delta Zeta since our earliest philanthropic efforts, from the 1920s forward,” said Christy Phillips-Brown, national president. “Our partnership with Starkey Hearing Foundation takes our national philanthropy of speech and hearing to a global level by supporting Starkey’s mission of bringing simple, sustainable and scalable solutions to provide hearing solutions worldwide.”

Delta Zeta sorority is a premier global network of inspired women who share a vision to truly change the world through leadership, service and philanthropy. Founded on Miami University’s campus in Oxford, Ohio in 1902, the sorority has more than 266,000 members worldwide and 170 chapters on college campuses throughout the US and Canada.
