The Chesterfield Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., awarded MEGA Mentors over $5,100 during the chapter’s Founders Day celebration January 4 with thousands of South Atlantic Region Deltas in attendance.
Carolyn Bentley and Dalesa Mack-Grisby, who are also both MEGA Mentors, led the Community Public Service Initiatives fundraising efforts for the Chesterfield chapter. Mack-Grisby, who is an executive board member for both organizations, said public service is at the core of Delta Sigma Theta’s mission.
“It was a pleasure presenting this award that will help MEGA’s efforts to support the underrepresented young people attending Chesterfield County Public Schools.”
Delta Sigma Theta has been a MEGA community partner since nearly MEGA’s beginning 10 years go.
“MEGA’s partnerships with community-focused organizations like Delta Sigma Theta embody the African proverb, ‘It takes a village to raise a child,’” said Greg Cummings, MEGA’s vice president for programming. “We all have the common goal of arming our kids with as many tools as possible for success.”
