Recently, the Mu Chapter was recognized in a publication put out by our National Headquarters as one of the top fundraising chapters for the Tri Sigma Foundation in the nation.Sigma Sigma Sigma proudly works with two philanthropy organizations: The Robbie Paige Memorial Fund and The March of Dimes!
Mu Chapter hosts two events to raise money for the Robbie Page Memorial Fund.
Our annual fall philanthropic event is Rock for Robbie. For one full week, our members as well as others on campus who want to participate rock in rocking chairs on the University Quad for 24 hours a day. During their time rocking, members are encouraged to try and raise money for the Robbie Page Memorial Fund.
Our annual spring philanthropic event was traditionally Rock for Robbie Bandfest (or R4R). Greek and other Campus organizations sponsor bands and everyone comes together for a night of music and fun. In 2015, we held our first Root Beer for Robbie fundraiser where we sold root beer floats to benefit the cause.
The Mu Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma continuously strives to raise funds for the organization's newest philanthropy, the March of Dimes, for the research of premature birth! Be on the look out for what our members come up with to help out this cause!
All of our members are also dedicated volunteering around our campus and the Kirksville community. Outside contributions given by our members include volunteering at the Kirksville animal shelter, donating blood, cleaning up campus, giving time towards Take Root, and participating in Truman’s Big Event (a campus-wide service event). Our members are also active in supporting other organization's philanthropy events or community service opportunities!
