Hello! My name is Hannah Prescott, and I am the Vice President of Philanthropic Service for Alpha Omega this year! I am a Junior majoring in Economics and History from Chattanooga, TN. I have always loved volunteerism and believe that service should our number one priority. I love being a member of Sigma Kappa because I get to work with such driven individuals that support philanthropies dear to my family as my grandfather passed away due to complications with Alzheimer's disease. I am incredibly grateful to get to serve alongside my sisters in Tuscaloosa at assisted living facilities as well as with projects like sending care packages to troops overseas. In this time, we are getting registered for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and starting our fundraising now for October. We are pushing towards our goal of $38,000.
I am looking forward to seeing what great impact we can have in our community this fall, as well as with furthering Alzheimer's research!
In 2019, the Alpha Omega chapter of Sigma Kappa raised $29,812.99 for the Alzheimer’s Association and was the top fundraising team at the West Alabama Walk to End Alzheimer's. The Alpha Omega Chapter was also recognized as a top 10 fundraising team among Sigma Kappa chapters nationwide. The chapter was invited to attend the Alzheimer’s Association Leadership Summit the previous year for their outstanding effort fundraising.
On February 23, 2019, Sigma Kappa hosted an installment celebration as their first-ever Alpha Omega Ultraviolet Event. At this event, national council members, volunteers, alumnae, and initiates of Alpha Omega came together to celebrate the installment of the chapter charter. At this event, with the help of chapter members, family members, and other chapter supporters, we raised $12,046 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation and $5,933 for the Housing fund.
In February 2020, our chapter held a donation drive in which we gave away a Yeti cooler. The drive ended up raising $3,415 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation. In addition to this, we also have begun fundraising for the annual West Alabama Walk to End Alzheimer's.
