Delta Gamma Volunteers at Alabama School for the Blind

The Delta Gamma Fraternity at Auburn University recently volunteered at Alabama School for the Blind (ASB). Through their “Service for Sight” commitment, Delta Gamma volunteers their time and raises money to serve and support individuals with vision loss.

“ASB thanks the ladies of Delta Gamma from Auburn University for their hard work yesterday in decorating our dorms and Easter eggs that will be used by our students for egg hunts,” said Trevor Kribbs, Principal, Alabama School for the Deaf. “Delta Gamma encourages women to act with intention so that they become an unstoppable force for good. We are thankful that they brought that unstoppable spirit to ASB! Together we are Deaf. Blind. Limitless.”

ASB’s residential students will enjoy the spring decorations and the younger students will be utilizing eggs decorated by Delta Gamma in an upcoming egg hunt. Eggs were painted with puff paint which is used to make raised lines and tactile drawings for students who are blind or visually impaired.

“The AIDB Foundation is always excited and honored to work with organizations, civic clubs and other groups looking to make a difference in the lives of those that we serve. The Delta Gamma Fraternity is a dedicated partner of AIDB. Their commitment is an example of Helen Keller’s famous quote, ‘Alone, we can do so little. Together, we can do so much’. We are so thankful that the Auburn University chapter chose to volunteer with us this year,” said Marquita Riggins, Assistant Director of Development, Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind Foundation.
