'Thank you in every way....'

Yet another story of the powerful impact donations have on the lives of our sisters!

March 25, 2011

EVERY NOW AND THEN, the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation receives a letter that really drives home the impact that our annual scholarships and grants have on today's sisters - especially those for whom assistance could mean the difference between putting their education on hold or completing their degrees.

Here's one such letter we wanted to share with you! (Won't you donate today and help us help even more sisters? Thanks!)

Dear Foundation,  

I want to say thank you very much for the educational grants that I have received from Phi Sigma Sigma. Over the past summer, I got very sick with an autoimmune disorder, and I lost my apartment. I never had family support and I was between living in my car to continue my education or dropping out. One of my sisters advised against dropping out of school. I did not think I had much of a choice, but she was able to talk to Residence Life and got me a room on campus. The school was able to help me with room and board, but not tuition. Your grant came at the perfect time
and was used toward my tuition and school books.

Thank you in every way!
