The Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter (PGCAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., captured the coveted 2010 – 2011 Chapter of the Year Award for the Eastern Region during the sorority’s 50th National Convention held recently in New Orleans. Having received this prestigious and very competitive honor for the third time in the past five years, PGCAC has a solid reputation for offering technical assistance to other organizations and providing innovative programs and activities locally focused on preventing and reversing childhood obesity, replenishing local food pantries, stimulating financial literacy, promoting youth development by way of mentoring, tutoring, sponsoring college tours, advancing reading opportunities including book giveaways, and developing mobile libraries internationally in Papua, New Guinea. The chapter donated $50,000 in scholarships to 17 college-bound and enrolled student residents this year.

The public is invited to support the first official activity of the sorority year, the PGCAC Back to School Supplies Drive, by dropping off contributions, 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., Sept. 11, at the Prince George’s Community College, Queen Anne Auditorium.
