Holiday Cards for Nursing Homes – Community Service Initiative

Help the sisters of Alpha Sigma spread Holiday cheer this season by donating Holiday cards for the residents in our local nursing homes. Each donated card is special and will make someone smile! There will be a drop-off box in SLC suite 305 Monday-Friday from 12-2pm.


Have blank Holiday cards but no time to fill them out? We will take them anyways. Don’t have cards but want to fill some out to support the cause? Look on Pioneer Link for any upcoming events Alpha Sigma Sorority is hosting, they will have cards at their events. These times don’t work for you? Reach out to us on Instagram to schedule a different time at alphasigmasorority.
