Tri Delta 'sincere' about fund raising



This spring, Delta Delta Delta Fraternity and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will launch the Sincerely Yours® letter-writing campaign as part of the group's endeavor to help eliminate childhood cancer. 

Sincerely Yours®  challenges each chapter member to send 50 letters to family, friends and neighbors encouraging them to make a contribution to St. Jude. St. Jude will provide the letters, envelopes and postage. Chapter members just provide the addresses. The campaign will begin in January and conclude during Tri Delta/St. Jude month in March. 

Tri Delta has pledged to endow $1 million for the hospital's Teen Room, which is an oasis for teen patients. This is a place for patients 13 -19 years of age to connect with other teens without the distractions of doctors, parents and younger children.  

To date, Tri Delta members have raised $945,854 towards the endowment. For more information about the Tri Delta/St. Jude partnership in hope, please visit www.stjude.org/tridelta.
