The Ladies of the Iota Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. wish to bring you greetings and a warm welcome!

Since our founding on November 12, 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana at Butler University by seven African American school teachers, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. continues its commitment to the tenets of excellence in Scholarship, Sisterhood and Service. For more than nine decades, the dynamic women of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. from all races, religions, and professional backgrounds have built and sustained a well-known and respected reputation for not only leading positive change, but more importantly, inspiring others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.

In 1935, the Incomparable Iota Sigma Alumnae Chapter was chartered and is the oldest in the Northeastern Region (which covers Bermuda, Canada, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Haiti, Korea, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virgin Islands, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia).  Iota Sigma Alumnae Chapter is comprised of women from every profession who are dedicated and sensitive in identifying the needs of the community in which we serve.

The ladies of the Iota Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. thank you for visiting our website!  We welcome you to our community service and social programs to continue to uplift our community.  We hope you find our website to be a convenient way to learn more about the remarkable programs, initiatives, and achievements of the Iota Sigma Alumnae Chapter.

Continued Community Service:  Poodle Purses Project

   

 

Date:      2017-2018 Sorority Year

For 2017-2018, the Iota Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority INC. has partnered with Thirty One to create purses stocked with feminine hygiene products as survival kits for homeless women in our community.  

Formerly known as the Poodle Purses initiative, Aurora's Closet now takes place monthly at the Richmond Friends of the Homeless soup kitchen. The address is 1608 Chicago Ave, Richmond, VA 23224. Check our calendar for the next date!

We are also open to any donations that you would like make (women's clothing, women's shoes, women's coats, etc.)  You can also purchase a bag from Thirty One and 20% of the proceeds will be donated towards toiletries for this initiative!

Bring donations to your favorite Poodle today.
