Disaster Relief Assistance Available to Members
Chi Omega continues to work diligently to provide support and
guidance to our members devastated by storms and other natural
disasters. One example of this support is the Chi Omega Foundation’s
Sisterhood Fund Disaster Relief Program. This program exists to allow
Sisters to help other Sisters, both alumnae and collegians, who have
found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly in financial need due to
Presidentially declared disasters.
As expected, the Chi Omega Foundation has received multiple
donations from members far and wide to help their sisters affected by
these disasters. If you or another Chi Omega you know is need of
financial assistance due to the early March devastation in Kentucky,
Washington, or Oregon, please reference either the Collegiate Short Form
or the Alumnae Short Form Application for Financial
through the Sisterhood Fund Disaster Relief Program.
Grants from this program are restricted in their use to the payment
of basic necessities arising directly out of a Presidentially declared
major disaster or emergency, and relief funds must be dispersed within
six months of the disaster.
If you have any questions about the Chi Omega Sisterhood Fund
Disaster Relief Program, please contact Saranne “Punky” Penberthy at
or the Chi Omega Foundation Executive
Assistant Linda Landon at (901) 748-8600.
On behalf of all of Chi Omega, we will continue to keep those
affected by these tragedies in our thoughts and prayers as you continue
to rebuild your lives, your homes and your communities.
