President’s Message

Welcome to the website of the Bronx Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.  We are a chapter of over ninety (90) members committed to providing service to the Bronx community. Chartered, in February of 1968, by sixteen visionary women who saw a need to bring Delta’s programs to the Bronx. Today we proudly and boldly continue that legacy.

The chapter is now serving in its forty-ninth year of dedicated public service to the Bronx community through signature projects and programs under our sorority’s Five Point Programmatic Thrust:  Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Development, Physical and Mental Health and Political Awareness and Involvement.  Also, we have partnered with local businesses, political and church organizations and other Greek organizations to address the social, political and international issues that affect the Bronx community.

Each year the chapter awards scholarships and grants to deserving Bronx High School students who are college bound.  We participate in voter registration drives, contribute to and walk to raise money for various health organizations and conduct workshops to improve community financial awareness.  Importantly, we reach out to assist in the positive growth of our youth through our Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy (for middle school girls), Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS (for high school girls) and the EMBODI program for young males. We also host a women’s celebration “Standing On Their Shoulders” awards breakfast every March. This event celebrates the wisdom and community service of women from diverse backgrounds who have contributed to their communities.

We constantly review our program through the work of chapter committees to ensure that we are meeting the needs of the community. Our sorority’s objective is to impact lives and change communities through Service, Leadership and Empowerment.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website. We look forward to your continued support as we “Transform Lives and Impact Communities” through service and sisterhood for positive change in the Bronx community.

Sincerely,

Sunjlee Pegram
