As a philanthropic organization our philanthropy of children's cancer research is a huge part of who we are as Tri Delta Woman. In 1999, Delta Delta Delta partnered with St. Jude Children's Cancer Research Hospital. In 2005 it was announced that Tri Delta raised $1 million a year earlier than was expected to endow a Teen Room for the hospital. Seeing how well we did with the first goal, Tri Delta agreed to a new deal with St. Jude - to raise $10 million in 10 years. In only 4 short years we surpassed the goal of $10 million, 6 years earlier than expected. During our National Convention in 2010, a new deal was proposed - $15 million by 2015 to name the Specialty Clinic in the Patient Care Center at St. Jude. In only 3.5 years Tri Delta met the goal of $15 million. Over the summer at our National Convention it was announced that Tri Delta would raise $60 million in only 10 years to name Tri Delta Place. Tri Delta Place will offer free housing to patients and their families that are visiting St. Jude for a short amount of time. At a local level, our chapter also focuses on the cancer research department at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Seeing that CHLA is so close to Northridge, we are able to make hospital visits and directly interact with patients.
We have great plans for this upcoming school year and can't wait for it to begin!
