On behalf of the Sigma Delta Omega Chapter, I would like to welcome you to our website! Sigma Delta Omega, located in Elk Grove, is known as the “Small but Mighty” chapter of Northern California. Our chapter is home to notable members—including a charter member—who have served at the regional and international levels, and is comprised of talented professional women who excel in the public and private sectors in the fields of medicine, law, education, finance, law enforcement, social work, technology, and government. Our fun, intimate chapter enables us to foster relationships while upholding the ideals of our founders.

Since our chartering on January 20, 1990, we have provided continuous service to the Elk Grove and greater Sacramento community. We are a small chapter with a big vision that makes an impact in the local community, and identifies opportunities to provide supreme Service to all Mankind throughout the US and abroad. Our annual fundraiser draws local dignitaries to bring awareness to the programs that we support and to raise money to provide scholarships for high school students. Collaboration with community partners support our efforts in the areas of: Educational Enrichment, Health Promotion, Family Strengthening, Environmental Ownership and Global Impact, which are outlined in our International Program Launching New Dimensions of Service.

It is my hope that our website enlightens you to our great legacy. If you are an Alpha Kappa Alpha member who is seeking to connect with a graduate chapter, we hope that you will consider joining us. I encourage you to explore our website and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay informed of our wonderful chapter events and service activities.

Best,

Kamieka Hairston, President

Community Impact Day: MLK Day of Service

Community Impact Day: MLK Day of Service

On January 16, 2017, Sigma Delta Omega spent the morning marching in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the afternoon connecting with those in our community who are experiencing homelessness. The picture above is of the bags/buckets of toiletries we collected.
With the generous support of chapter members and community members we were able to exceed our goal set of 100 bags and donate 104 care packages. Chapter members along with family and friends of members provided soap, shampoo, socks, scarves, toothbrushes and tooth paste and warms hats all packed into handled buckets and bags, for easy carry. Sigma Delta Omega also partnered with Planned Parenthood Mar Monte and each care package had health services information and condoms. Meeting our Seasonal Wraps and Family strengthening targets, this project made an immediate and lasting impact on our community.

Sisterly Relations Activity – Opening Night of Hidden Figures

Sisterly Relations Activity - Opening Night of Hidden Figures

Several Members of SDO and local Sorors gathered together to support the opening night of Hidden Figures. The inspiring work of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority members Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson graced the screen to tell the story of three brilliant NASA mathematicians. The movie is a must see. It was truly inspiring to see how much our three Sorors work as-sisted in the success of the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. We were moved by the strength, intelligence and grace it took our Sorors to be the first African American women in their positions and to reach such significant milestones.
